Sweet and Sour Sesame Asian Cabbage and Kale

Makes 4 servings


1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp tamari
   (wheat-free soy sauce)
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp toasted sesame oil

1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups kale, washed, stems removed
   and cut into bite-size pieces
Sea salt
2 cups red cabbage, shredded


In a small bowl combine the ginger, tamari, lime juice, maple syrup and toasted sesame oil and set aside.

Place a small skillet over a low flame and toast the sesame seeds until they turn slightly brown and smell nutty, about 1 minute. Remove to a plate.

Heat the olive oil in a large, deep sauté pan over medium–high heat, then add the kale and a pinch of salt and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the cabbage, and another pinch of salt, sauté for 1 more minute.

Add the sauce mix and cook for 2 more minutes or until tender. Add the toasted sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
