Helene’s Healthy Cabbage.
Toasted Sesame & Tamari Red Cabbage
This cabbage is amazing! My mama, Helene, created this healthy cabbage recipe years ago. I grew up eating this meal and it was always one of my favorites. I haven’t had it in years and I was really craving it, so I asked my mom for the recipe. I’m not sure why I waited so long! It is one of the easiest recipes and is so delicious and nutritious. I served it with whole-wheat couscous but you could also serve it with rice, pasta or eat it on its own.
- 1 large head red cabbage, sliced
- 1/2 cup reduced-sodium tamari (tamari is gluten-free soy sauce)
- 3 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes (this is a supplement found at Whole Foods)
Begin by heating the sesame oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Add the red cabbage and the tamari and then put the lid on and continue to cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Keeping the lid on will allow the cabbage to steam and reduce. Add the nutritional yeast and then continue to cook for 5-10 more minutes.
