>What's your favourite vegetable?
Parsnips is the first to come to mind.
They have a very distinct yet subtle taste, along with a soft comforting way of breaking apart when cooked in stews, which makes for a nice texture contrast to other root veggies.>>883
Cabbage is way rougher than something like a head of lettuce, even if you've cut out a piece it lasts at least several days just left out at the counter (YMMV depending on your ambient temps).
Can also turn leftovers into sauerkraut, just add salt, some heavy handling, and time. Haven't tried myself yet but looked through a couple of instruction vids, seems simple enough.>629
It's good to keep in mind though, even if some nutrients may be destroyed by the heat in many cases absorption is still higher or equivalent cooked because the food is easier to digest.>623
If you want a healthier alternative there's always steaming.
Better than boiling since water soluble vitamins don't leach out into the cooking water (not relevant if soup since you eat the broth anyway), better than frying cause no created carcinogens and no need for any cooking grease.
