Eating cabbage or other greens is considered good luck on New Year's Eve by many because the green leaves are representative of money. This ancient vegetable has a lot of interesting history and lore backing it up, including its use as a hangover remedy. It's also packed with vitamins, making it one of the most nutritious vegetables. With a little imagination, you can make cabbage rise above such common dishes as cole slaw, sauerkraut, and corned beef's partner. Try Cabbage au Gratin, High-Calcium Cabbage Bread, Reuben Loaf, and more cabbage recipes.
