Red Cabbage Juice

Posted on

So many people start the new year with new resolutions, like going to the gym or juicing. Not me, I try things any time. The juiceĀ  I’m presenting today is something I tried in October.

The taste of this was surprisingly good (especially given my dislike of cabbage), although I added a few drops of liquid stevia to it. Unfortunately I don’t have a juicer and my blender left rather too much pulp for me to actually drink it as a smoothie. Instead I had to put it in a strainer and extract the juice that way.

Italian Pumpkin Cabbage Soup

Posted on

I had cabbage left over from rumbledethumps, and pumpkin left over from olan, so I looked for a recipe which would use both, and found one. Naturally I replaced the lard in the original recipe with vegetable oil to make it vegan.

This is quite a fancy name for what is basically cabbage and potatoes. I reduced the cheese significantly, using it only for a topping and not mixing it in. I also used more Savoy cabbage and less potato. Mainly I decided to make this as I had leftover buttermilk and potatoes.

Cabbage and Potatoes with Mustard

Posted on

I used a recipe from Short-Cut Vegetarian by Lorna Sass as a guide. The recipe calls for leeks to be cooked in olive oil, then for cubed potato, Dijon mustard, water, salt, and vegetable stock powder to be added. Cabbage is added later, and the dish is finished with pepper.

I opted for different proportions of leek and potato than the recipe recommended (more leek, less potato). I also added extra mustard. I can see why the author recommended red-skinned potatoes, as the dish is rather bland in appearance, but I was unable to find them. I also added a bit of minced garlic to the leeks.

Chickpea Tomato Cabbage Soup

Posted on

Here’s the recipe. Naturally, I made a few changes. First, I halved the recipe. Second, I used canned chickpeas, as I had a tin which was about to expire. Third, I used the Chinese cabbage I had left over in place of green cabbage. Fourth, I did not add the water that the cabbage was cooked in, but drained the cabbage before adding it. No doubt some vitamins are lost this way, but it also serves to diminish taste of sulpher that would otherwise come from cooking the cabbage a long time. Of the options given, I used carrot, added rosemary, and used water rather than stock.

Sprouted Mung Bean and Glass Noodle Soup

Posted on

I had some mung beans left from my last sprouting, so I decided to riff off of mung dip yum. I made a lot of substitutions to work with what I had on hand: a Madame Jeanette chili instead of a Jalapeno, soy sauce instead of tamari, leftover peanut sauce from my lettuce wraps instead of creamy pecan sauce, Chinese cabbage as the green leafy vegetable, glass noodles instead of rice noodles, and different proportions of most of the main ingredients!

I liked this because the taste of the bean sprouts was mild and the broth had a lot of flavour.
