This recipe is not to be confused with my veggie pasta, where I actually incorporate gluten-free noodles. This pasta is completely grain-free, 100% all veggies and it is amazing. It's super easy, surprisingly very filling if you have a large bowl, and great hot with dairy-free butter or high quality butter/ghee if you tolerate dairy. There are two options here in making this dish. The convenient way if you're on the go like I was on Easter, or the more involved option that I like to do when I'm home in my own kitchen.
Pre-packed mix of shredded broccoli, cabbage and carrots
For at home:
Earth Balance Dairy Free/Soy Free Olive Oil Butter
Wash all vegetables thouroughly. Slice cabbage leaves into thin strips. For the carrots and the broccoli stalks, you may use a mandolin or food processor to get uniform strips.
For fresh, or bagged mix, heat Tbsp. of EB Butter over low-medium heat and place veggie mix in a heated pan. Add a little more butter to your preference as well as sea salt and any additional spices or herbs of choice. I'm doing a more gentle body detox right now, so I didn't add anything additional this time and it was still very flavorful. Cook on medium heat, covered, until "noodles" are soft but still hold a little bit of crunch.
Serve warm with a protein on the side. Enjoy!
The possibilities for this veggie stir-fry are endless, however I kept it to veggies that are safe for Auto-Immune Paleo, as I was using a lot of peppers/tomatoes in my dinners lately and I havn't been feeling as well, so I thought I'd omit them with this tasty dish. There is also a meat option, and if you eat tofu you may add that as well. I do not promote the consumption of soy products due to so much soy being GMO, and the way it messes with my hormones. The beauty of this dish is you can alter it to your specifications anyway you like.
