Default Red Cabbage or Green Cabbage?

Whats the difference between the two? Nutrients? Taste?

Ive had both of course but they were always together so I dont remember a texture or taste difference. My friend asked me and I really didnt know what to tell him.

LOL!! That's a good question DS!! I'm sure there has to be a difference, but I have no idea either!!

I like to use red for braised cabbage and S&S cabbage soup, but green for most everything else. I hate to say it, but for me its asthetics!

I like to have red one raw, for salads, or just to munch on it. For soups or cooking I'd only use the green one, because I do not like how red turns color when cooked.

I use both all the time and have never really noticed a taste difference between the two cooked. Raw the red seems a bit stronger but again not by much. You probably wouldn't notice the difference unless you did a side by side tasting of both.

Red and Green taste pretty much the same as Joe said. And like Charlie said, the red can bleed the color off when cooked.

Red typically has more vitamin C and antioxidants, while green has more Folate (Vitamin B9). Other than that, pretty much identical.

A mixture of both would be a nice effect in a coleslaw.

The red seems more firm and crunchy than the green.

I agree with that assessment Kei and I like to use both in coleslaw.

I use napa cabbage for cabbage rolls and in my Kim Chee. I think it is a touch sweeter than most other cabbages. It is also great cooked with a bit of bacon, apple and vinegar.

Bok Choy is another favorite of mine also. I had some the other night with my grilled lobster at the ECG Friday night restaurant which was excellent I might add. The restaurant is http://www.savorygrille.com/ and the vegetables aren't listed on the menu as it is what ever is fresh. In my case the lobster came with bok choy, asparagus and risotto and was perfectly cooked. The vegetables were steamed to just the right amount of crispness. The salad was good as was the lobster and the dressing was to die for on the salad.

Balsamic makes such a good dressing. Something else good is to mix a little bit of that spicy pepper vinegar with it.

Tabasco peppers in vinegar. The lid is designed so you can sprinkle the vinegar on your food without pouring the peppers out.
I usually use Trappey's brand but any brand will do.
