Mango, Black Bean, Coconut Cabbage Stir-Fry
What a wonderful mix of flavors: mango, pepper, coconut, raisins, sunflower seeds, coriander!
This dinner made a MESS in the kitchen but it finally came together.
First I chopped 3/4 of a head of savoy cabbage. I would recommend only a half next time because it was a LOT of cabbage!
Then I sauteed/steamed the cabbage in a little EVOO and water in a wok. Basically I tried to sauté it but it was way too much cabbage so it turned into steaming. This was my first time with a big head of cabbage like this and I didn’t know what to do! I seasoned the cabbage with S+P and some coriander.
On the side I drained and rinsed a can of black beans and heated them in the microwave.
On the other side, I heated about 2/3 a can of light coconut milk with 2 mini boxes of raisins in a pot.
On the other side, I diced a mango and red bell pepper and seared them in a skillet.
When everything was cooked and hot, I put the cabbage in bowls and poured the raisins/coconut milk overtop. Then I topped that with the mango/pepper mixture. Then I added 1/2 a cup of beans for me and the rest to the husband. Lastly, I added 1 tbsp of toasted sunflower seeds to mine and the rest to the husband. Red pepper flakes were also involved.
My portion was about 480 kcal, 23 grams of fiber and 19 grams protein.
This was such a big bowl I couldn’t finish!! I left about 1/2 a cup of cabbage in the bottom (but ate all the goodies 8) )
With a few crackers –
This dinner was about 560 kcal, 25 grams fiber and 21 grams protein.
My MOUTH would like dessert, but my stomach is stuffed. I think I’m due to brush my teeth soon!
