Cabbage is probably not on most peoples top 10 list of vegetables but our guests thoroughly enjoyed this curried cabbage recipe which I served as a bed for brined and braised chicken thighs. The agave nectar helps to take away some of the bitterness and the curry adds a zest to the dish. Make sure to season with salt to enhance the natural flavors and then add a touch of fresh black pepper.
Cabbage is a great source of nutrients which I listed below and also contains a high amount of Omega-3 fatty acids. There’s actually more Omega-3’s in 100 calories of cabbage than 100 calories of salmon!
