This cabbage soup recipe is a great way to incorporate cabbage into your diet. Cabbage is one of those “miracle foods”. Native to the Mediterranean region, ancient Romans and Greeks used cabbage for food and medicinal purposes.
It is packed with vitamins K and C. The phytonutrients found in vegetables such as cabbage, actually send messages to our genes to produce enzymes that help our cells detox.
