Riced Cabbage Recipe
This recipe is for one serving although you can very easily double it to make two.
- ½ cabbage medium
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper
- ½ tbsp. bouillon powder
- 1 scallion
- ½ tsp. salt to taste
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- Firstly, wash the whole cabbage thoroughly and pat dry well with a paper towel.
- Secondly, chop them roughly and transfer to the electric chopper (works best) or food processor.
- Also use the chop function to shred it into smaller pieces until it is in the size of rice (coarse chop, do not make it as a paste).
- Similarly, chop the red bell pepper and scallions into small pieces.
- Then, heat the olive oil in a pan and when it hot, add the bell pepper and scallions and then stir for a minute or two on medium-low heat.
- After that, add the cabbage, salt, black pepper, and bouillon powder on medium heat, and mix everything until it begins to soften.
- Close the pan with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes (stir in between as it gets burnt on the bottom layer quickly).
- Lastly, once the raw flavor of the cabbage completely goes, switch off the flame and serve hot
