Updated on June 13, 2016

Healthy Red Cabbage

Extremely Scrumptious And Wonderfully Delicious

A perfect home-style side dish recipe of red cabbage that is extremely scrumptious and wonderfully delicious. Just simply add all the chopped apple and with every bite the taste buds just profusely water with great delight. The ideal side dish to serve along with kosher poultry, grass-fed beef, wild turkey, farm-raised cornish hens, wild pheasant, or even possibly kosher lamb. A very healthy side dish that is widely known to be very low in calories for all of the calorie counters. It makes for a great alternative to the usual boring bowl of green cabbage cole slaw. A great choice for your next large family gathering or a potluck dinner at the local park. Always feel free to add other tasty fruits rather than just fresh apples to the red cabbage recipe. Some basic alternatives may include adding cherries, dried cranberries, raisons, or maybe even some red currant jam. Typically the chopped pecans, chopped walnuts, or even maybe some chopped chestnuts will compliment the red cabbage very nicely. There are presently many different types of fresh apples on the market that a person could use in the red cabbage recipe that offer several different flavors. The fresh Golden Delicious apples normally have a very sweet taste, the fresh granny smith apples give a much sharper flavor, and are typically a much more crispier apple variety. Others might just prefer a much more tart type of fresh apple varieties such as the jonathan apple or even the macoun apples. Depending upon ones personal preference of taste there are different spices and many herbs that can be simply added into the red cabbage recipe to suit your particular form of taste. A few typical spices often will include organic thyme, chile peppers for the spicy version, minced garlic, caraway seeds, cloves, dried bay leaves, ground nutmeg, ground ginger root, fennel seeds, sage, or even fresh parsley. For a much sweeter type of flavor a person could incorporate small amounts of brown sugar or maybe even white granulated sugar. To create a much bitter type of taste of flavor a person could liberally add sherry vinegar, one hundred percent lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, or maybe even your favorite brand of bitter tasting red wine. Other possible ideas for creating additional flavors could include adding diced white onions, extra virgin olive oil, chopped brussel sprouts, or possibly even fresh red beets. The many various ways to alter or change the flavor of basic foods can often times be practically endless with a wide array of different choices.

Red Cabbage Versus Green Cabbage

The bright purple head of raw cabbage or commonly known as the red cabbage is naturally a much healthier choice when compared to the usual green cabbage variety that is sold up at the local supermarket. The very high concentrations of vital anthocyanin polyphenols naturally gives the red cabbage it's highly vibrant and ruby red shade of color. Red cabbage is high with many different nutritional benefits, absolutely full of robust hearty flavors, and will offer significantly more protective phytonutrients than that of the typical green cabbage. The healthy anthocyanin pigments intensifies because of there many health benefits as dietary antioxidants, important anti-inflammatory benefits, potentially protective, possibly preventive, and even therapeutic roles in a great number of different common human diseases. In fact, according to many studies conducted at several universities around the world the studies consistently revealed that a simple small three ounce serving of raw red cabbage will deliver nearly two-hundred milligrams of beneficial polyphenols that include roughly thirty milligrams of essential anthocyanins. The typical green cabbage yielded much less per three ounce servings with only a tiny forty-five milligrams of beneficial polyphenols that include only a mere 0.01 milligram of essential anthocyanins. Red cabbage consistently measures in with a whopping eight times higher level of the highly important vitamin C and it's antioxidant capacities are also eight times greater than that of the typical green cabbage. Generally the cooking of any type of fresh vegetable for long periods of time will naturally deplete it's vitamin content. Commonly the fresh vegetables dietary fiber and the mineral contents will always stay intact. Be certain to put a burst of highly vibrant color on your dinner plate with the healthy, vitamin infused, and dominating red cabbage.
