Cookbook Countdown: 3 Days to Go: Mexican Cabbage

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon

After 28 hours of travel time (it took more than a day, both ways, to travel between the Caribbean and Whistler in Canada), I wasn't in the mood for much cooking. Though, I was also desperate for a healthy, home cooked meal after 28 hours of airport food...

So, on the way home, we stopped at the grocery store (knowing our condo would be practically empty in terms of food) and I pulled up the "quick 1-pot meals" section of my cookbook on my kindle. (I can't begin to convey how awesome it is to have a copy of all my recipes IN the grocery store!)Anyway, I zoomed right in on the Mexican Cabbage knowing this recipe whips up in about 15 minutes (including prep-time) and it was full of healthy vegetables, which my body was craving.Ahh... it really hit the spot. This cabbage dish is crazy nutritious and really flavorful, too. It was exactly what I needed and with Scott's help, we had it plated in under 10 minutes!

I also threw some fresh cilantro on top which I think added a nice zing at the end, and boosted the color of the dish... and! lucky for YOU, this is one of about 20 recipes that was originally on the blog, but made it into the book -- so you can sample it now if you're still waiting for your book to arrive :)

p.s.If you've already received the cookbook,please leave a review on amazon or -- reviews helped the book jump to#4 on the vegan best sellers list yesterday! together we can make it #1!

Recipe:Mexican Cabbage

This recipe is just dying to prove to you that cabbage is not bland! It's spicy, flavorful and a little sassy.



Chop cabbage into thin strips, set aside. Line a medium saucepan with water and saute onions and garlic over high heat until translucent. Add cabbage, tomato sauce, chilis, paste and spices. Reduce heat to medium and cook until cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and stir in frozen corn until evenly distributed. Taste test, adjusting spices as needed. Salt to taste if desired. Mix in black beans before serving. Break corn tortilla chips into small pieces in your hand and sprinkle over top before serving.
