I feel like cabbage is so underrated! It’s so delicious to me… but I mostly stir fry it Chinese style. One common method is to stir fry cabbage with dried shrimp (recipe here), but another is to stir fry cabbage with Sichuan peppercorn! This gives it a different flavor and it’s always fun to switch it up and eat something different and delicious once in awhile.
- 1 small to medium cabbage
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon Sichuan peppercorn
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or coconut amino if paleo or gluten free)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 dried chili peppers (optional, if you like it spicy)
- Salt, as desired
Heat up oil in a wok or skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and let cook for a few seconds. Then, add the cabbage and stir fry for about a minute.
Then, move the cabbage to the side, and add the sichuan peppercorns (and dried chili peppers if you wanted it spicy). Peppercorn will become fragrant.
Stir fry all of it together and add soy sauce (or coconut amino if paleo or gluten free).
Stir fry for another minute or until cabbage is cooked thoroughly and then remove from heat.
