Fact of the Day: Father Vegetable

Brassica oleracea, known simply as Wild Cabbage is the ancestor to many vegetables in your produce department. Not only did modern cabbage evolve from it but so did broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, kale, and collard greens.

I like cabbage and especially how they are stir fried in Chinese dishes, not a fan of brussel sprouts though, but I reckon if they were given an Asian twist, they would probably be more appealing to me!
