I love going to the grocery store and picking up ingredients you don’t’ find in a typical American household, like japanese radishes, lychee fruit, dandelion leaves and yes Napa cabbage, to just name a few. I picked up these beautiful napa cabbages at my local grocery with no real idea what to do with them. I love to chopped them up in my healing broths, but not this time. I had something hardy, crunchy and so fulfilling for these guys. Raw Napa Cabbage Tacos. Yes!! Who doesn’t love a good taco? Raise your hand. Okay, maybe one person, put your hand down. LOL. 🙂
Here’s a simple start to your mind going wild with possibilities for this recipe. Enjoy. Oh yes, please Set the Table with Love.
Raw Napa Cabbage Tacos with an Avocado, Ginger and Lime Sauce.
( you can use more of each ingredient if you like, fill those cabbages up)
2 large Napa Cabbage leaves, cleaned
1 cup alfafa sprouts
1/2 cup chopped poblano peppers
1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
1/2 cup chopped organic green apples
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, for garnish
1/2 cup raw organic corn
1/2 cup chopped avocados
1/2 cup chopped mangos
1/2 cup of sliced red cabbages
sea salt, ginger powder and cayenne powder to taste
Place all ingredients on the side on a platter and season them to taste. Start making your sauce.
Avocado, Ginger and Lime sauce
1/3 cup water or more, if needed
2 tbsp. lime juice
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 clove garlic
1 tsp organic honey
1 tsp. powder ginger
cayenne pepper to taste
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend thoroughly. Taste and more water or spices if needed. You want a sauce that is easy to pour over your tacos. I had to add a little more water, but starting out with less is better. You can always add more later.
Place your cabbage on a nice plate. Add your sprouts first, spread them out, add the other ingredients as you like. I added my soft ingredients like my mangos and avocado last so they would not get mushy under the rest of the vegetables. Drizzle your Avocado, Ginger and Lime sauce on top of your Napa Cabbage Tacos and enjoy.
