Copycat Low-carb Cabbage Rice

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by AKillian24

As I am moving away from rice - I've found the subtle flavor of cabbage serves as a great alternative, particularly in an Asian dish like stir-fry or teryiaki chicken.

This was pretty good! I did have a little trouble, since I don't have a steamer, but I steamed the cabbage in a double boiler and it seemed to work -- although I think I overcooked it just a tad. I used butter and minced ginger, and the taste was very good -- and subtle. I would use this recipe for the cabbage in lo mein and fried rice, and the flavor possibilities are endless! Thanks for posting this easy to follow, low carb recipe. I will be making this again and perhaps adding some cayenne pepper for a little "kick."
