Asian Baby Cabbages

This is one of those random dishes that I made one night with stuff in the fridge. Not going to lie, it was pretty amazing and that is why I’m sharing it with you. I found myself with a bunch of Brussels sprouts that only had a few days left so I had to find something fun to do with them. A veggie that often gets overlooked but is a rock star in the nutrients department is Red cabbage which is the base of this recipe. A kick of protein rounds this recipe out with the addition of crunchy peanut butter and grilled chicken.

o Brussel Sprouts

o 2 Grilled Chicken Cutlets

o 2 C. Chopped Red Cabbage

o ½ C. Peanut Butter

o ½ Red Onion

o 2 Tbsp. Soy Sauce

o Ground flax seed

o 1 Tsp. Turmeric powder

o ½ C. Water

Start by warming coconut oil in two medium sized pans over medium heat. Chop your onion and add to the pan along with the red cabbage. In the other pan place the Brussel sprouts and sauté each for about 15 minutes. Once cooked through, add the peanut butter and soy sauce to the Brussel sprouts adding the water to thin out the sauce. After about 3 minutes when the sauce has melded the flavors and thickened up, remove from heat. Plate the red cabbage mixture and serve the sprouts on top. Sprinkle with a bit of flax seed to add extra nutrients and texture. This is great to add cold on top of a salad the next day too. Enjoy!
