Mmm cabbage

Aside from being delicious, cruciferous vegetables are supposed to be quite good for one’s health, and lately I have been trying to incorporate a wider variety of them in to my diet. This week has been all about cabbage.

The dish pictured below was thrown together using ingredients I had on hand. I thought it turned out pretty well!

cabbage, shredded lettuce, red onion, kidney beans, nutritional yeast, corn, pickled ginger, avocado and hummus.

Coleslaw: shredded cabbage, shredded lettuce, kidney beans, red onion, corn, green onion, nutritional yeast, pickled ginger, avocado, hummus, a little bit of lemon garlic dressing and capers.

This next dish was inspired by a number of simmered Nappa cabbage recipes, as well as Diet, Dessert and DogsAsian Inspired Nappa Cabbage Salad:

shredded Nappa cabbage, grated carrot, tofu cubes, soy sauce, miso paste (soy overkill!) and sesame seeds.

Simmered Nappa cabbage: shredded Nappa cabbage, grated carrot, tofu cubes, soy sauce, red miso paste (too much soy?), sesame seeds and a delicious math assignment.

Unfortunately, this week has also been full of stress! Thankfully I have learned how to manage some of that stress with yoga. How do you cope with stress?

On a partially unrelated note, I have been accumulating a few links over the last week and I thought I might share some of them, as we are touting ourselves as a vegan food and lifestyle blog:

    Stress. . . the bane of my existence. Unfortunately, I usually handle stress by eating chocolate–not highly recommended. In the days when I managed to meditate for 40 minutes every day, that was an incredible stress-reliever. And I’ve heard that yoga is great, too!

    I love what you did with the cabbage–I’ve actually never had napa cooked, so will give it a go!

    I’m envious of the ways you used cabbage. I gave my CSA cabbage away to my mom because I never know what to do with cabbage.

    Oh no, evil stress. I am an aspiring yogini, but I am also beginning a Sophrology class to help me relax more. I hope the stress will leave you alone!

    I heart cabbage. And that coleslaw sounds so yummy. I’ve never had coleslaw with kidney beans in it, but it sounds perfect!
