Cabbage Muffins

Over the years, I have made many kind of muffins but not enough of the savory ones.  When I came across this recipe in "The Best of the Family Table", I jumped to make them.  The recipes in this book come from a weekly magazine, called Mispacha which means Family.  One section in it is dedicated to cooking and recipes and I have found that there are some original and tasty ones there.

Cabbage is one of those veggies that I think, you either love or hate.  I love it in almost any form.  It is great in salads, soups, baked goods, side dishes and mains.  It can be mixed with a variety of other ingredients.

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable.  I included a list from the World's Healthiest Foods.  Sometimes it is hard to understand how vegetables are related, certainly not by taste or crunchiness.  I read that originally cruciferous veggies were chosen by their appearance of a cross (crucifix) but that has been changing.

Cruciferous Vegetables
Bok choy
Brussels sprouts
Chinese cabbage
Collard greens
Daikon radish
Land cress
Mustard greens
Shepherd's purse

Cabbage is a very healthy vegetable. It is the vegetable highest in Vitamin A, darotenoids, Vitamin C, folic acid and fiber. Sounds good to me. Please go to the site above to get more detailed information on cabbage. You just might eat more of it after reading the article.
