Hood Cabbage With Apples and Currant, Excellent for Diet
The precious properties of purple vegetables
Braised cabbage with apples and currants brings the purple colour to the fore on our table. Do not be intimidated by this obsolete shade, many specialities have this colour starting from the excellent purple carrot or even from the red beets. What these ingredients have in common, besides obviously the colour, is the richness of nutritional properties which is particularly interesting also in the case of the purple cabbage.

In addition to these data, we can underline that purple cabbage contains vitamin C, always useful for our body to strengthen the immune system and a significant amount of antioxidants, essential to counteract free radicals and stop the advance of the signs of ageing.
