I don’t like strength training, but I like having flabby arms less.
I don’t like cleaning the toilet, but I like having a dirty bathroom less. (Matty B is laughing right now, thinking, “She doesn’t even know where the toilet brush is, much less how to use it!)
I don’t like cabbage…
But I like wasting food even less.
You’ll recall that last week I made this cabbage salad that was less than fabulous. But I still had a 1/2 head left! I knew I couldn’t choke it down raw, but maybe a little heat could help.
I sliced it into wedges, drizzled it in olive oil and sprinkled it with salt. High heat (400) and 20 minutes later and I began to have some hope.
After perusing countless cabbage recipes online, I was less than impressed. The majority were heavy on the “slaw” aspect, something I’ve learned I’m not too keen on.
And then I found this recipe. The sauce is what really enticed me and it totally stole the show!
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup water
1 TBS maple syrup
1 TBS Bragg’s liquid aminos
1 tsp garlic chili sauce
1 tsp minced ginger
1/2 tsp salt
All ingredients are puréed in the vitamix. So good. So good that my roasted cabbage was not only tolerable, but enjoyable! (I think roasting the cabbage made a big difference too!)
I don’t like sand in my shoes…
But I like missing out on things like this even less…
