Simple low-carb and keto cabbage recipes

Cabbage is a versatile vegetable and comes in many shapes, sizes and colors. Green cabbage, with its firm head and smooth leaves, is probably the best known, but there are many other types of cabbage to discover. For example red cabbage and pointed cabbage.
