Tasty Savoy Cabbage

I love to use Savoy Cabbage for this recipe. If you never tried Savoy Cabbage before, you may want to give it a try for the first time on this recipe!

Savoy Cabbage is a characterized by its distinctive, wrinkled appearance, Savoy cabbage is not only visually appealing but also boasts a delightful, mild flavour that sets it apart from other cabbage varieties.

The leaves are tender and slightly sweet, making them a versatile ingredient in both raw and cooked preparations. 

I love to use savoy cabbage for making cabbage rolls, salads, or even soups! If you like Kale, give my recipe for my Asian Kale Crunch Salad. Similar to this recipe with a different twist!

4 healthy reasons to add savoy cabbage to your diet

Here are 4 healthy reasons to throw some Savoy Cabbage in your diet:

  4. Low in Calories: Savoy cabbage is low in calories, making it a nutrient-packed, low-energy-density food. Including Savoy cabbage in your meals can help you feel full and satisfied with fewer calories, making it a valuable addition to a balanced and calorie-conscious diet.

Asian slaw dressing

Do you love a good asian flavoured dressing? Then you might want to bookmark this Asian Slaw Dressing. 

Most asian inspired salad dressings will call for toasted sesame oil. I personally find it slightly abrasive in flavour that takes away from the rest of the ingredients in the recipe. I like to substitute asian oil with a little bit of peanut butter. You get that nutty flavour without that strong sesame oil flavour.
