Red Cabbage

(Rotkohl, Rotkraut, Blaukraut, Rotkappes, or Blaukappes)

Red cabbage is a cabbage with a round, dense head of red or purple color. It is similar to green cabbage, except that it is slightly sweeter and its leaves are tougher due to its longer maturity time.

Red cabbage is a vegetable high in vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, vitamin K, calcium, and magnesium. It is also very low in calorie - 1 cup shredded raw red cabbage has only about 22 calories.
