Spicy Miso Cabbage Salad

green cabbages

1 medium-sized cabbage (red, green, or mix), finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
A few drops sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon brown miso paste
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup peanuts, roughly chopped
1/2 cup scallions or chives, finely chopped

Toss the finely chopped cabbage and salt in a large bowl. Place something heavy like a pot (any size that will fit into the bowl) on top of the cabbage and leave for a couple of hours.

Combine the olive oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar, brown miso paste, and red pepper flakes in a small jar and beat with a fork until combined. The miso takes some time to fully dissolve. You can add water to thin to any consistency desired. Taste the dressing and make necessary adjustments before adding to the salad (keep in mind that the cabbage has been salted).

Once the cabbage has wilted a little, toss with the miso dressing and scallions or chives and serve or cover and place in the fridge. It will get better as it marinates. Sprinkle the peanuts on top before serving.

Guilt-Free Egg Fried “Rice”

Cauliflower

“Riced” cauliflower is an easy, nutritious, low-carb alternative to plain white rice.

1 cauliflower
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2-3 fresh chillies, chopped
2 spring onions, chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 handfuls cooked king prawns
2 eggs

For Serving
1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
1 handful peanuts, roughly chopped
Ginger
Shredded cabbage
Bean sprouts
Sweet chilli sauce

Run cauliflower through food processor until it resembles rice. If your pile of “rice” is damp, wring it out in a dish towel and spread it out to dry.

Get your wok nice and hot and add oils. Crush garlic and fry until it just begins to turn light brown. Add chopped chillies, followed by the “rice,” which will need a good stir to get all that nice flavor from the oil. Keep stirring and after about a minute, add spring onions. Add soy sauce and keep stirring until it starts to look golden. Stir in prawns and after a minute, make a well in the middle of the wok. Crack the first egg into it. Allow it to fry a little, then break it up with your spatula. Just as it’s starting to look cooked, stir it through the cauliflower. Repeat with the second egg and then you’re done! Serve topped with any combination of cilantro, peanuts, cabbage, ginger, and sweet chilli sauce.

If you had fun “ricing” your cauliflower, you’ll have a great time with this popular Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe!
