Cabbage Marsala

Cabbage and Spinach

A Delicious way to prepare cabbage. Cabbage Marsala provides a new flavor with the healthy nutrients we need. Here we partner with the popular vegetable spinach to get the nutrients of spinach, but we mellow it out with cabbage. This dish can be mild or spicy. It has so much more taste, texture, and nutrients if prepared this way, instead of the boil-until-dead method of old. We use Garam Marsala which is an Indian spice made up of a combination of spices. Marsala can be purchased at most grocery stores. However if you cannot find it, we have listed the ingredients below that you can simply combine and store in a tight jar.

1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander

Spinach functions as anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer agent.

It is also rich in calcium but according to many experts like Paul Pitchford, the calcium in spinach is not bio-available to the body due to a high oxalic acid content.
