So here is another international vegan recipe that I would like to share with you! Hakusai is a very popular staple in one of the world's leading cabbage producers, Japan. This versatile dish is delicious, easy to make, and it does not take long to prepare. A significant high point for this recipe is that the ingredients are very inexpensive. I often hear individuals lament about how eating healthy is too costly. However, a healthy diet can most definitely be affordable. This is especially true for those of us who enjoy growing produce at home. But even if you don’t have your own garden, just take a look at the ingredients below. Most of these are staples that you probably already have in your kitchen! And how much is it to purchase a cabbage or two? My cabbage was huge, and when I doubled the recipe I had enough stir fry to serve this as a side dish for 10 people!
Japanese Style Stir-fried Cabbage
o 1 Japanese cabbage (you can substitute another kind of cabbage here too), cut into wide strips
o 1 medium-sized onion, cut into small wedges
o 1-2 Tablespoons of soy sauce (to taste)
o ½ cup of Olive Oil (or enough to cover your Wok/skillet
o Pepper (to taste)
Instructions: Heat up olive oil in a large skillet or wok. I like to sprinkle a little cayenne pepper at this stage. Add in the small onion wedges. Sauté onions on medium heat until they begin to become translucent. Add cabbage and stir until softened. Mix ingredients well. Season with soy sauce to your preference.
Note: I think it is easier to prepare this dish and similar dishes in a wok. The shape of the wok makes it easier for you to toss and stir. Try this stir fry and let me know what you think!
