For years, and I do mean YEARS, I would turn my nose up at egg rolls … I mean, seriously, it was a fried, greasy “thing” filled with icky cabbage, carrots and protein. Oh, wait … are there eggs in there?? I honestly don’t know but I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve taken a bite and just said NO THANK YOU.
Crazy, I know!
I was just never a fan of them … they were overly fried, borderline cold and again, that icky cooked cabbage stuff ::shudder::
Then along came Whole30 a few years ago … and I discovered a ‘few’ things that I might like after all! Imagine that!
Yup. I can tolerate cooked cabbage so long as it’s not a wimpy, hot mess! Hence, this dish was perfect!
Yes, I have tried to do a Whole30 several times. And failed each time. Just not my thing. You know, things happen, the random beer appears, etc. See, it’s the booze that always gets ME off track. And I have not excuse other than, it’s just the way it is.
But this dish? It sticked around even after those numerous failures of a full 30 days of clean eats. Because it’s really yummy! And even Mark likes it 😉
1 bag of tri-color slaw (cabbage,carrots, red cabbage mix) *don’t use the angel hair mix!
1/4 onion, diced
smashed clove of garlic
1 tbs avocado oil (coconut oil or olive oil is fine)
1 tbs sesame oil
cooked protein of choice. I’ve used shrimp, chicken and pork, all are yummy! YOu can skip the protein if you want
2 green onions, sliced thin
*if you are not opposed to soy, then by all means, use soy sauce … just know that I’m on the train that says soy is bad*
Heat the oil in large skillet over medium heat. Take my advice and use a larger skillet than you think you need. Toss in your cabbage mixture with onion and garlic and saute til soft.
Add coconut aminos and sesame oil and saute a little longer to absorb some of the liquid. TIP: measure all in a measuring glass and be ready to just dump and go!
Add your protein of choice (if using ) and garnish with green onions and eat up!
Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties … go check them out!
