The taste of red cabbage is no different from its familiar relative - white cabbage. However, dishes with its addition look much more impressive.

It is also very useful and can compete with many well-known vegetables in terms of vitamin value. In this article, you will learn how to make delicious soups from this wonderful vegetable.

We will share with you the best recipes for the first courses with red cabbage. You can also watch a useful video on this topic.

How to choose a vegetable?

Be sure to touch the cabbage: if the head of cabbage is dense and tight, and the leaves look fresh and whole, then you have a fruit of excellent quality. If the head of cabbage seems loose and soft, then most likely the inside of the fruit is rotten. Young fruits are most suitable for making soup - the harvest season for red cabbage is in August-September.

Benefit and harm

Attention: Red cabbage is a storehouse of vitamins of groups B, C, PP, H, A, K. Also, it contains many useful microelements: magnesium, iron, potassium, proteins, fiber, phytoncides. It has 4 times more carotene than ordinary cabbage.

So is it possible to cook cabbage soup? Despite the tremendous benefits of this vegetable, you should not overuse it. Red cabbage contains a huge amount of vitamin K, which helps to increase blood density... If you are taking special blood thinners, you should refrain from consuming these fruits. Also, eating red cabbage can lead to bloating, diarrhea and discomfort.

On average, the calorie content of red cabbage soup is 25 calories per 100 grams, but depending on the other components, it can increase several times.
