This Cabbage Fiesta recipe is a great natural detoxifier. Cabbage is part of the cruciferous vegetable category. Known for its cancer-fighting abilities, this vegetable also increases our body’s glutathione content. Glutathione is one of the body’s most potent detoxifiers. Pumpkin seeds are high in the mineral zinc, needed to help many of our detox enzymes run efficiently.
1/3 cup finely shredded green cabbage
1/3 cup finely shredded red cabbage
1/3 cup grated carrot
1/3 cup cooked garbanzo beans (this can be canned)
1 tablespoon roasted pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
A few flakes of red chili pepper to taste
Rock or sea salt to taste
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
Sautee the cabbage and carrot in a little olive oil for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Combine the cabbage, carrot, garbanzos, and pumpkin seeds in a bowl.
Make the dressing by mixing together the olive oil, lemon juice, chili pepper flakes, salt, black pepper, and cilantro.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat. Enjoy!
