Cabbage is cruciferous vegetable. It's not only pretty on your plate but very nutritious and tasty. It's one of the cheapest veggie on the planet. It is known to cure stomach ulcers which gives us another reason to eat more of this purple veggie. The red ones are actually a bit sweeter than the green variety. 

Why is red cabbage called Red Cabbage anyway? It's purple! Oh, never mind. 

Salads can be your summer staple and goes well with any meal idea you have.

Healthy meal made easy:

For the Cole Slaw:

  • Red (purple) Cabbage
  • Cashew dressing (look here for the recipe)
  • Cashew Cheese (ground raw cashews)

For the Hash

  • 3 to 5 Potatoes (whichever type you like)
  • 2 - 3 tbp Rice Flour (to bind the taters)
  • Salt/Pepper to taste

For the Hash:

Grate the potatoes!

A simple grater will do but a favorite is the Mandoline Potato Slicer and Vegetable Grater. Cuts cucumber, onion and cheese with 5 stainless steel blades. This is a favorite Julienne Vegetable Grater/Slicer plus a Food Container. It can do a good job with just about any veggie grating.

Mix 3 tablespoons of rice flour to the grated potatoes. Put salt & Pepper to taste. Shape into patties and fry in a heated/oiled cast iron pan with a little bit of oil. Brown on both sides. That's it!

For the Slaw:

Slice the red cabbage thinly.

A mandoline is really a good tool for this job. Another favorite is the Mandoline Slicer with FREE Cut-Resistant Gloves, Stainless Steel Adjustable Vegetable Slicer. A nice Julienne Cutter which includes a food holder and blade safety sleeve. Or you can just simply do it in a food processor if you wanna get fancy. Gotta love all these mandolines!

Once the cabbage is grated, put your favorite cole-slaw dressing. Home-made is best. Cashew dressing was used for this recipe. That's it! Easy peasy!

The hash and the crispiness of the cole-slaw just go perfectly together. It's a very satisfying meal. There's no need for burgers. Let's leave the animals alone for a minute there.

Wash it down with a perfect lemonade and there you have it, a complete nutritious meal.

A food processor is another easy tool to have if you are going to be shredding veggies. There are affordable food processors out there like the Hamilton Beach 12-Cup Stack and Snap Food Processor. The prices vary according to capacity.

So, if you are going vegetarian for weight loss, this is a go to meal for you. Do you think you can live with that?

I thought so. It's yummy, it's healthy and preparing a good salad is a breeze.
