Sesame Ginger Sauteed Cabbage and Carrots

Sesame Ginger Sautéed Cabbage and Carrots is a quick and easy side dish bursting with Asian-inspired flavors such as sesame, ginger and scallion.
Sesame Ginger Sauteed Cabbage and Carrots - The Lemon BowlAdmittedly, our family eats a lot of vegetables. Between our weekly Door to Door Organics box, frequent trips to the farmers market and my inability to cook small portions, we can’t get enough of them.

Of course, vegetables can get really boring really quickly if you don’t season them appropriately. Especially the humble cabbage which gets a bad rep thanks to memories of over-boiled cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day.

Greek Marinated Grilled Eggplant and Summer Squash - The Lemon BowlWhile I love the simplicity of grilling and roasting vegetables in a little olive oil and salt, I also enjoy putting an Asian spin on things. Low calorie, flavor-packed ingredients like fresh ginger, soy sauce and scallions can transport a humble vegetable like cabbage into a simple yet exotic side dish your family will devour in minutes.

    I am glad to have found your site – you have so many great HEALTHY ideas here, just my cup of tea. You could probably use a little SHICHIMI in this recipe to good effect as well, although you don’t want to get too complex. BTW, I think you are using WordPress; what theme are you using? All the best,

    What a fun take on cabbage! I also have the inability to cook for just my hubby and I so we always have leftovers (which is nice for lunches) but this recipe is screaming my name-looks super healthy and yummy!

    I like to think I eat a lot of veggies year-round, but it’s crazy how many more get consumed in the summer. It’s such a happy feeling. Love this Asian twist to these veggies! Off to Erin’s to check them out!
