Cabbage Wraps Attempt #1: Southwestern Vegetarian Wraps/Salad

December 12, 2010

Despite my Gaelic roots, I never really ate cabbage growing up. However, on my quest to try new veggies a few years back I realized that I really like the complexity of purple cabbage. Usually, I use it for burritos or cole slaw, however I decided to make cabbage wraps this week. I thought it might be nice to try two different approaches based on items already in our pantry and another under used food in my repertoire: soy crumbles. Because they aren’t the healthiest version of soy, I tend to only use them once in awhile. However, I wanted to at least diversify this use to be a little more interesting. The garnishes at the end are optional, so if you are vegan just put your own appropriate substitute on top if you so desire.

The Soutwestern Vegetarian Wrap:

Update: After trying the recipe, I realized that the purple cabbage was too tough to peel for the wraps. I would recommend using green cabbage, butter lettuce, or romaine for your own wraps. We just decide to make it into a salad, and that worked well too.

The Southwestern Vegetarian Salad Version:
