Spicy Paprika Cabbage Steaks

Feb 23, 2021 | Side Dish

Cabbage is often an overlooked vegetable, despite having a very impressive nutritional profile. 

Sometime cabbage is mistaken for a type of lettuce, but it actually belongs to the same family as broccoli, cauliflower and kale! 


Very low in calories at only 22 calories per cup it packs a punch as a good source of fiber, vitamin C and K. 


Cabbage contains insoluble fiber, which keeps the digestive system healthy by providing fuel for friendly bacteria. Vitamin C protects the body from free radicals that can cause cancer and is needed for the production of collagen. 


Cabbage steaks are all the rage right now, so today we’re taking vegetables from boring to awesome with my spicy paprika cabbage steaks.
