Cabbage is one healthy food. Have you tried to stir-fry cabbage? Stir frying keeps more nutrients locked in and the taste is great. Add a little garlic and stir fry in sesame oil for a special flavour.
Stir fried dishes have a big advantage in that they are cooked quickly, locking in the nutrients, and the vegetables are only cooked partially, virtually steamed. Out of all the different cooking methods, I find stir-frying to be one of the healthiest and tastiest ways to cook and eat a vegetable dish. You will find this dish, Chinese Style Cabbage, to be both tasty and satisfying when it comes to a quick main meal.
The two distinctly different cabbages in this dish are normal or regular cabbage, and wombok. Please view the images below to familiarise yourself with these cabbages. Always peel off the outer layers with any cabbage and personally I find a long serrated (a bread knife) to be the best ones to use. Cut the cabbage only moments before you cook it in the wok, that way you will preserve the nutrients. The same counts with all ingredients with your stir-fry dishes. Cut them, place them in small separate bowls and do this moments before you start the dish.
