Asian Skillet Cabbage

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Izzy The Terrible

As a chinese-food-aholic, I'm constantly in search of low carb alternatives. I've tried cauliflower fried rice, and just could not get around the texture, so rather than trying to fill a void with poor alternatives, I decided to make something just as good - but different. The recipe is intended as a simple BASE recipe, add whatever you like. Keep in mind, the flavor comes from the Sesame oil, and the soy sauce. Those ingredients are non-negotiable.

This was good. I added some fresh sliced mushrooms as well as some sliced zucchini since they were in the fridge. I topped ours with some vegan mandarin chik'n.
