Vegan Recipe | Dry Fry Maple Soy Purple Cabbage

by Kortney Campbell on September 16, 2013

IMG_0060 I usually try to take pictures of the cooking process much more than I did with this recipe. However, in all honesty, it was so simple and last minute that I wasn’t planning on enjoying it enough to share. But I did. So…I’ll share.

What you need:

  • 1/2 a head of purple cabbage
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 large yellow onion
  • A few handfuls of fresh spinach
  • A handful of fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp of maple syrup (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 cup of Braags Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
  • Salt & pepper to taste

IMG_0054 What you do:

  • Place a large pan on your burner & turn up the heat (high)!
  • Chop all of your veggies into bite size pieces (I shredded the carrots).
  • Place the onion & cabbage into the pan first and let them blacken a bit on the edges (5-7 minutes worked for me), then add the carrots & zucchini.
  • Once everything is cooked (I like everything to remain bright & crispy), add your basil, spinach, Braags & maple syrup.
  • Mix well until the spinach as wilted to your liking.
  • Enjoy!

If you’re making this as a side dish, it’s great topped with hemp seeds, chia seeds & flax oil. I made it more of a full meal by topping it with a crockpot wild rice, quinoa, lentil & garbonzo bean mixture. Oh, and Siracha. Always Siracha.

Purple cabbage is so pretty and I love colorful meals, but I’m always so hesitant to buy it! What are some of your favorite ways to eat cabbage? I’d love to hear them in the comments below!
