Cabbages belong to the family of brassicas or Crucifers. In our country, there are numerous species of cabbages: "galega”, "repoho”, cauliflower, broccoli, Portuguese kale, Brussels sprouts, "couve nabiça”.
They are considered super-foods because they are rich in Vitamins A, C, K, calcium, folic acid, fiber, carotenoids, glucosinolates and indoles.
They are easy to make but require patience and love, as the dough crumbles easily. It is important to follow the instructions carefully and to let the cookies cool down before dipping and wait again until chocolate solidifies.
I would say the biggest challenge was no to make these shortbreads dairy or gluten free, it was having to wait before eating (or should I say, devouring) them.
