Chinese Cabbage

This is a very easy dish with few ingredients, full of fiber, very healthy, and keto-friendly.

I don’t eat meat so I’m using seitan that I minced, but for omnivores, you could use ground meat (preferably a very fatty one, which would make this higher in fat).

  • 1/2 medium cabbage, thinly sliced (400g)
  • 1/6 red onion (30 g), thinly sliced
  • 80 g seitan minced, OR minced meat
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 or 1 whole garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce + 1/4 tsp kelp powder (optional) OR 1 tbsp soy sauce + 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp tahini paste or peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of red chili paste (or to taste)
  • 2 eggs
  • Sweetener of choice - I used stevia
  • To serve: lemon juice
  • Process
    1. In a pan, fry the ginger and garlic on the oil for 30 seconds.
    2. Add the cabbage and onion. Cook covered on medium heat for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the soy sauce, kelp, tahini, black pepper and chili powder.
    3. When it starts to soften, add the seitan (or meat)and mix. Cook for another 2 minutes.
    4. Then,add the sauce, mix and cook for a couple of minutes.
    5. When the cabbage is soft, add the eggs as shown in the video: add them raw and mix fast, so they cook covering the cabbage to make it moist.
