I have the funniest picture of my cousin when she was 4 years old. She’s sitting on the floor with her hands in a bucket almost twice her size. At that time in Russia, families often made sauerkraut by the bucket-full as it had such a long shelf life.
Personally I don’t like sauerkraut, but I do love cabbage. This quick stir fry is the perfect dish. It’s cheap, scrumptious, and ready in 5 minutes! I love the subtle sweetness of cabbage and how the textures play together.
1 cup cabbage [1 vegetable]
1/3 onion, chopped
2-3 button mushrooms [1 vegetable]
1/4 cup egg whites [1 protein]
1/2 cup black rice (or brown/white), cooked [1 grain]
1 tsp oil [1 fat]
>> Saute onions and mushrooms in oil. Add cabbage and egg whites. Serve on black rice. Top with toasted sesame seeds.
