Cabbage and Kale: Recipes We Love

October 1, 2013

Cabbage and kale get some well deserved attention in this collection of recipes.

Lauded for its nutritional content and chewy texture, kale is one of our favorite cruciferous vegetables. We gleefully toss it into soups, stews and pastas. Here, it stars in a salad—in all its raw and chewy glory. Combined with apples and pepitas, the salad is dressed with its own sweet and sour vinaigrette.

But kale’s crunchy cousin, cabbage, has yet to have its day in the sun, until now. When roasted in a hot oven, it surprised us all. The high heat created brown, charred leaves that were succulent and moist on the inside and crunchy and caramelized on the outside. Drizzled with a vinaigrette and dusted with cheese, it steals the show.

Red Cabbage and Apple Soup

This hearty and delicious soup gets an extra burst of flavor from the shredded apple added just before serving. Golden Delicious apples are sweet, but if you want a sharper-flavored, crisper variety, choose Granny Smith instead.

The trick to this pretty stir-fry is to stop the stir-fry process just shy of when you think you need to, so that both the cabbage and the kale retain their bright color.
