Stir-Fried Curried Cabbage

I had an extremely large bag of cabbage laying around in my fridge so I came up with this delicious, healthy dish that I hope you’ll enjoy. What I really love about this dish is that it’s super simple, quick and easy. If you have shredded cabbage, everything else takes no time at all. Also, please feel free to tweak and alter the recipe to your liking. The most exciting thing to do is to get in the kitchen and play around with what you have. If you’re missing an ingredient from the list, don’t let it stop you–experiment with some other ingredient that you do have!

Allow the kitchen to be your creative space and never be afraid to dive into a recipe and make it your own.

Next, add the sliced onion and cook until golden brown, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the garlic just barely turns brown. Try not to overcook the garlic, it will become bitter if cooked for too long.

Next, add the cashews, ginger and cumin and cook for about 2 minutes or until the cashews become a golden brown, I had my cashews already roasted which is always an option.
