A very healing cabbage recipe w/daikon radish & microgreens. Easy to make & enjoy with rice, quinoa or wrap! Inc. video & pics!
Here is a very powerful, healing recipe that truly heals, thanks to one of the most medicinal vegetables on this planet - cabbage! Cabbage is rich in fiber, which is great as fiber is the one we need to keep out digestive tract healthy and clean. On top of that, cabbage paired with daikon radish, which has been used since centuries to aid in digestion. Countries like India and Japan eat lot of daikon radish during winter times, when it is cooked in savory recipes. Called 'mooli' in Hindi, recipes such as savory mooli paratha (flat-bread stuffed with radish) or mooli sabzi (radish vegetable) are made almost everyday during winter time.
Now, you might think that the combination of these two vegetables with give you bloating or gas - no, it won't. My recipe is brilliant as it is made with lots of cumin seeds as well as asafoetida, both of which aid in digesting such fibers.
Now, let's get cooking!
1. Organic cabbage - I used 1/2 here but you can use more.
2. 4 organic yellow onions
3. 1 garlic
4. 1 organic daikon radish (can add more)
6. 2 organic tomatoes
7. Organic cilantro
Spices, Seeds & Oils -
1. Organic Himalayan sea salt
2. Organic Turmeric - 1/2 Teaspoon
3. Organic Cumin seeds
4. Organic coconut oil
5. Asafoetida (Hing)
6. Cumin powder
7. Coriander powder
9. Garam masala (optional)
Top It With -
1. Organic apple cider vinegar

How To Pair?
You can use this recipe with one of my rice recipes (click on the categories to the right of this article), you can have it as a wrap in lettuce or kale! Very healthy & super tasty! Another way to enjoy this is by simply pairing it with soups - this is especially great if you are trying to lose weight, detox and/or lower inflammation in the body.
For Those With Sugar Issues - Pair it with quinoa instead of rice. Or simply wrap it up in lettuce or kale or even slightly cooked swiss chard! Yummy!
1. Organic apple cider vinegar must be added at the end when the food has cooled down a LOT - otherwise you lose its benefits.
2. Adding cilantro and microgreens add not just more flavor but also enhances the nutritional value of this recipe. Add them at the end - just enough to wilt them. Watch the video.
3. If you have SIBO, IBS/IBD, leaky gut, etc - Make the recipe exactly as is except you can lower the spices further. This recipe is already very low on spices - so you can adjust more according to your digestive condition.
Love the new method to make the cabbage. It tastes better with your recipe.Thanks!
I was having some digestive issues, so decided to make this dish at Somyata’s suggestion. Since I am a trouble maker by definition, I decided to include the tomatoes because I am going crazy for flavor in my food. I did exclude the garam masala and the cayenne. And I added some mushrooms at the last minute of cooking because — well, because I needed to use them and they sounded good. And truth to tell, I also included some chopped up collard greens and cooked them with the cabbage during the last few minutes because I didn’t have any micro greens. Plus I didn’t have any radish, so that got left out. And wow. Put it on top of some brown rice and this was a wonderful meal. Hopefully tomorrow morning I’ll be done with the digestive issues, but this was worth it, even if I’m not.
Oh...you naughty naughty trouble maker!! I just told Ms.Nona about you and your adventurous spirit in the kitchen...!! 🤣
This looks reeeeally good.
Hi Ms.Nona - Hing is what we Indians add to all our temperings (tadka) and you only need a pinch as it is very pungent and strong in flavor too..
I use this brand, available on Amazon: Rani Asafetida (Hing) Ground. Hing is absolutely the best for fart-free bean cooking. Plus it adds a wonderful sort of distinctive bitter taste to anything. A bottle will last a long time because you rarely use more than a pinch.
Thanks a lot Pamela for sharing it. If you are buying from amazon, then look for one from 'Pure Indian Foods' - that is the one I use and it has no fillers and like you said, it lasts a long time as you only need a pinch. It is amazing! -Somyata.
