Enjoy cancer-fighting savoy cabbages, the most tender of cabbages, at their peak.
The savoy cabbage has distinctive leaves that are beautifully crinkly and range from dark to pale yellow-green.
Its mild, sweet flavour makes it delicious served raw (shredded in a slaw, for example); steamed and stuffed (like an alternative to vine leaves in dolmades); or stir-fried.
What’s remarkable about including cabbages in your diet is the benefit of cancer prevention. Cabbages are excellent sources of vitamins C and A, and have high levels of polyphenols. All account for the significant levels of antioxidants in cabbages. Polyphenols also provide anti-inflammatory benefits, while glucosinolates found in cabbages (specifically glucobrassicin and sinigrin in savoy cabbages) can be converted into cancer preventing isothiocyanate compounds. A recent study indicates that only briefly cooked and raw cabbages are beneficial to cancer prevention. Steamed cabbage has also been found to lower cholesterol (even more so than raw cabbage).
Choose cabbages that are firm and seem heavy for their size. Leaves should be shiny and crisp. If possible, buy your cabbages whole. Once they’ve been cut, they rapidly lose their vitamin C content. Store them whole and tightly wrapped in the refrigerator. Once cut, consume as quickly as possible.
Organic savoy cabbages are available at SuperNature Forum and online.
With an earthy, sweet flavour and long tuberous root, it comes as no surprise that the parsnip is closely related to the carrot. This fleshy tuber is chock-full of vitamins, essential minerals and dietary fibre.
A sweet alternative to the regular Russet or Yukon gold, this humble root lends itself to a plethora of different cooking methods. Great as a casserole dish or simply steamed, this spud is no dud when it comes to health-boosting benefits.
An apple cucumber gets its name because of its resemblance to a green apple. It has a crispy, juicy flesh, very sweet taste, and can be eaten without peeling the skin off. After it ripens, it develops soft prickles or spines that are white.
Black Knight carrots are readily distinguishable by their ink stained skin with variegations of orange and ivory blushing through from the root's core. The flesh's colour is a contrasting warm yellow.
Higher in beta carotene, and vitamins C and A than its green counterpart, red oak lettuce also provides a good proportion of fibre, folate and minerals. Enjoy this attractive, frilly leaf in salads, sandwiches and side dishes.
