This Paleo Cabbage Recipe is something delicious, and although the dressing is reminiscent of a peanut dressing it’s actually made with almond butter.
I really like cabbage. Raw. Cooked. It’s all good to me. I don’t really have an inspiration for this recipe or a reason I made it. It just sounded good to make an almond butter dressing. And honestly it was a little harder than I thought. After 3 failed dressing attempts, it finally came out right!
I made this recipe with one bag of 9 oz shredded cabbage from Trader Joe’s. But then I tried it with a 13 oz bag, and it came out fine too. I’d say use about a half a head of cabbage, if you are cutting it yourself.
As for my personal life, I just began medical school and I will be documenting my journey a bit on the blog. Out of 3,500 applicants, 200 of us were chosen to be there and the only word I can use is honored. There are so many brilliant, driven minds around me and it’s amazing to think in 4 years we will all be doctors. Finding out what specialty to choose is going to be an extremely tough deicison. At this point, I’m interested in so many different things. But when people ask I say Gastroenterology or Dermatology. Who knows what I will say in even a month from now?
Either way I hope to not give up on the blog. It’s my creative outlet, and a place where I can feel like I’m making a small difference. Even if that means you finding one or two recipes that you use for you or your family. So time to get cooking! If you are looking for more recipes head to the Recipe Index.
