How to make vegetarian cabbage stir fry

Print this recipe
When you think of cabbage, what do you think of? Most people probably think about coleslaw, but I always think about my grandmother’s noodles and cabbage. It was a simple dish – literally just noodles and cabbage – that put dinner on the table during lean times. Over the years, I modified her basic version to become the recipe below. It's filled with heart-healthy vegetables and I swapped in zoodles (spiralized zucchini) for the pasta noodles.
You can have some fun with this stir fry recipe and add in a few ingredients so it suits your mood. If I'm craving Chinese take-out, I'll toss in some Asian-inspired ingredients such as sesame oil, soy sauce, chili flakes and minced ginger. Other times, I go German-style and add caraway seeds, mustard and sauerkraut. The possibilities are endless with this base recipe, so feel free to experiment.
