Hello and welcome to Recipe Monday. Today’s recipe is not only super easy, simple and quick to prepare, it is also filled with cancer fighting properties. The concept of Sandra Cline Living is simple, tasty, quick and nutritious meals. I prefer to use fresh and colorful products and ingredients that each has its own individual purpose. When preparing a dish I pay close attention to the combinations I choose, to be sure to achieve delectable meals that are not just nice to look at, but that are going to aid the body with its chemical process. Thus my recipes are not just simple recipes, they also serve a medicinal purpose. Behind ever seed and herb I use there is a meaning and reason.
I really enjoy creating meals with whatever ingredients are available at the time in any given occasion. So for today’s recipe, I decided to open the fridge and see what there was in there that I could utilize for a delicious, purposeful meal. After seeing all the delicious raw vegetables sitting in the crisper, I decided to prepare RAW Vegan Cabbage Wraps.
All the ingredients in this recipe have about the same nutritional value. Most of them are cruciferous vegetables and have cancer fighting properties due to the amounts of vitamin c and k. The green beans are a good source of protein. These wraps are low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. They are also a good source of Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.( nutritiondata.self.com)
Please note that I prepared this recipe raw so that the body can absorb the nutrients easily, however if you have difficulties eating raw veggies then you may cook the ingredients.
Here is the recipe and its ingredients.
½ cup of carrots
1 cup of cauliflower:
½ cup of fresh radish
½ cup green beans
1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro
6 purple cabbage wraps
Using a food processor pulse the carrots, cauliflower, radish and green beans until they are finely grounded and set them aside. To make the wraps from the red cabbage simply cut the cabbage in half and remove the core.
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of ginger
1/2 cup of sesame oil
1/4 cup of sweet ice tea
Mix all the ingredients until you have created the desired consistency. I like my sauces to be a bit thick and not to liquidy so you may adjust the ice tea according to your liking.
How to assemble :In the center of the cabbage wrap place enough vegetable mixture; add a bit of salt and pepper. Top with some cilantro. Wrap and drizzle with the peanut sauce. Serve, eat and enjoy.
