Cabbage ‘Noodles’

So you are a recovering sugar addict now on a grain free diet, yet you were raised Italian and miss pasta? Hey! Me too!

Two words, bitches: Cabbage Noodles.
They are easy. Cut a small head of cabbage in half for two people (no left overs, so second helpings won’t be a temptation!).
Slice it up, and the slice up the slices into strips.

Now, be sure to snack on handfuls of raw cabbage while you wait for the water to boil.

Noms.
Noms.

Boil it for about 5 minutes until the cabbage is starting to turn translucent.  I say no longer. You want some crunch, you don’t want soggy mush.

I used to make sweet and hot sauce with lots of sugar. Broke the sugar in my sauce habit… but didn’t leave behind the heat. Lots of red pepper flakes and jalapenos in this batch.

Then this happened:

I swear to you, it’s even better than pasta.
Give it a go.  Gavin’s not a fan, this is how he rolls:

So make some cabbage noodles and let me know how you like it.
