Brassica rapa Pekinensis group, also know as Chinese Cabbage.
It it is made up primarily of water (about 97%) and it is rich in protective vitamins,particularly Vitamin C.
One cup of cabbage contains only around 15 calories and 22.5mg of Vitamin C.
It is a very versatile vegetable, can be eaten raw in salads, steamed, baked, grilled, pickled or stir fried.
I love to serve it as a salad with lemon juice, salt and some red peppers. Fresh and crunchy goodness.
