Couve, a portuguese cabbage
We eat it for dinner and juice it for breakfast! It also doubles nicely as a fan in this hot weather!
We always love finding something new to grow regardless how old and global it may be. More like a spinach than a cabbage, couve is one seriously popular plant. There are hundreds of types of cabbages in Portugal but the most famous is the couve-galego which is used in the classic portuguese soup caldo verde. Country people are passionate about their couve. we are huge fans of green leafy vegetables, and Portuguese cabbage is packed with vitamins, (one of the most nutricious foods you should eat)
