I have put together one of those have-it-all recipes for you. This Curried Cabbage with Tempeh is packed not only with delicious flavour, but it is also loaded with nutrients and protein. It's a great option if you are looking to bump up your protein intake without going too crazy on those calories.
Easy recipes are our favourites, and recipes that get better over time probably come in second. This Curried Cabbage covers both categories perfectly. It has become a lifesaver on those crazy days when I need to get dinner ready quickly and I want my family to have a nourishing meal.
When I say this recipe has it all, I am not exaggerating. Let me tell you a bit more about what's in this dish so you can fall in love with it as much as I did. But beware, your family might be asking to have it on demand from now on.
First of all, let's talk about nutrition. The main ingredient in this recipe is cabbage and as you might know, this is a powerhouse of nutrients. Cabbage is a super versatile veggie that can be cooked in many ways but what doesn't change is all the benefits you reap from consuming this veggie.
I won't get into too many technicalities. So let me just tell you some of its health benefits. Cabbage has a load of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents, as well as anti-cancer properties. It supports your digestive tract, improves heart health, is good for your skin, for weight loss, regulates blood pressure, and improves brain health.
You get so many benefits from adding cabbage to your diet that I could write an essay about it. I won't, let's get back to the recipe instead. On one last note about cabbage, this veggie is also low on calories. So it was the perfect ingredient for us to have a high protein vegan meal without ranking up our calorie intake.
I often hear people worried about protein when switching to a vegan lifestyle. The recipe has about 37g of protein per serving. It is the ultimate high protein vegan lunch or dinner option, pretty hard to top.
Another great thing about this curried cabbage is that you don't have to break the bank to have a delicious meal, We are all about cheap vegan dishes and with the ingredients we are using, we managed to make a super affordable dish.
Last but not least, the taste! Our curried cabbage is jam-packed with delicious flavours and is so aromatic. The combination of garlic, turmeric and peanuts, is just amazing. These simple ingredients will do the trick!
As you can see, I wasn't exaggerating by saying that this meal has it all. It is super healthy, affordable, comforting, and incredibly tasty! I like to serve this cabbage dish with a side of quinoa to make it more filling without being too heavy.
