Mushroom Cabbage Stir Fry

1 fat, 1 grain, 1 protein, 2 vegetables20140326-164515.jpg

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.
