Cabbage Wraps Part 2: Asian Vegan Wraps

January 20, 2011

So, in part two of my explorations in the world of cabbage wraps, I decided to do an Asian twist. Learning from my last wrap, I changed to a softer green cabbage. When I made my Vegetarian Reuben last week, I just peeled off four top leaves and wrapped them in paper towels, then chopped into the cabbage for the Reuben’s slaw. Now, a few days later, they worked wonderfully to hold my soy crumble mixture. Because couscous cooking depends on what you are using (boxed or bulk), I have the ingredients list cooked couscous. However, feel free to prepare the couscous while you saute the onions. An easy meal for a week night, give it a try! (sorry no pics for this one, I forgot oops! Next time I make it, I will update with a picture)
