This I got from Dr Weil's site. Cabbage is a true vegetable treasure, widely underappreciated. It is low cost and highly nutritious. Along with the other cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale), cabbage provides significant amounts of fiber, vitamin C and an important class of nutrients called indoles. Research on indoles is focusing on their ability to protect against both breast and prostate cancer. An additional bonus in this savory side dish is the mushrooms. Use the more flavorful (and healthful) shitake mushrooms if you can find them.
