Russian Cabbage


Years ago, as a child, I never much liked cabbage. I think back then everyone used to boil it for too long. Hubby and I were planning to travel across Russia a couple of years back and one day we noticed a local restaurant was having a Russian theme for a special menu. Of course we had to try Russian food. Anyway this quick cooked cabbage was on the menu and we both loved it. I've changed the recipe slightly in that I've added chopped fresh dill which is such a popular herb in Russia.

Food Facts:

Cabbage is regarded as a "wonder" vegetable because it has so many good qualities. Raw and juiced cabbage has anti-viral and ant-bacterial properties. It is considered to speed up the metabolism of oestrogen in women and this may protect against cancer of the breast and womb. Studies have shown that men can reduce their likelihood of getting colon cancer by two-thirds if they eat cabbage more than once a week.
