These cabbage noodles with a sesame garlic dressing make the perfect side dish for tea, just top with your favourite protein. I’m a big fan of vegetable noodles like courgetti or carrot and celeriac noodles but sometimes I fancy a change and these cabbage noodles are delicious.
There are so many different types of cabbage out there, 13 in fact. Today i’ve used a medley of red drumhead, sweetheart and savoy to make these cabbage noodles but you could choose whatever you fancy. Cabbage is full of antioxidants, vitamin C and is fibre rich so a great addition to your diet. It’s also low calorie, low carb and contains little starch so totally allowed if you have an autoimmune condition and watching your gut health.
Don’t forget the dressing as it really makes the cabbage noodles sing. Top with heart healthy avocado to top up your essential fatty acids quota for the day. Your skin will love you for it!
