Recipe by One Happy Woman
This is a low carb version of stir-fry cabbage - it doesn't need to swim in a sweetened cornstarch sauce. It just requires vegetables, oil and seasonings and is an easily adaptable recipe using other vegetables you have on hand. We often have it with grilled pork.
- 1 head green cabbage
- 1 chopped yellow onion
- 1⁄3 cup chopped scallion
- 1⁄2 lb brown button mushroom
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons Splenda sugar substitute
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro, with stems
- 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
