So, a few fridays ago, it was Friday the 13th. Am I superstitious? Not really but I did notice the date that day. Then, I remembered that I had a head of cabbage in the fridge. Cabbage is good luck in many cultures. Then, I thought, heck, maybe it will bring me good luck. Hey, why not try it out on a “scary” day.

Do I believe in luck? Maybe. Do I believe in hard work? Oh yes. Do I believe they can work together and magic can happen? You better believe it.

Yesterday, I made my debut in my local newspaper, the Observer-Reporter. Check out the story over here. Yep, I will be writing for them, sharing recipes and health tips. I am totally stoked for the opportunity.

Luck or hard work? I think it was a little of both. Either way, magic happened and the cabbage dish I put together totally rocked.

Thai Purple Cabbage Noodles

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 onion, diced

1 head of purple cabbage, core removed, sliced thiny

1/2 bag of spiral brown rice noodles

drizzle of tamari soy sauce

1/2 lime, juiced

salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 cup raw cashews, chopped finely

handful of fresh parsley, chopped finely

Directions:
Heat a skillet and add olive oil. Add the cabbage and onions and saute until they are soft, about 8-10 minutes. In the meantime, boil a pot of water and cook the noodles as directed on the bag. When the noodles are done, drain them and then add them to the skillet with the cabbage and onions. Toss. Drizzle the tamari soy sauce and the lime juice. Top with cashews and parsley.
