Sesame Red Cabbage

Remember that beautiful Miso Roasted Baby Aubergine and Unicorn Noodle dish? Remember that I coloured my noodles with red cabbage. Well this recipe is how to use up the rest of your cabbage, in a super quick easy way. I love red cabbage, I love it pickled, raw, cooked but this is my absolute favourite way to eat it, it's tangy and crunchy and has a great flavour of sesame. This would work perfectly as a side to your noodles, or at a summer bbq, or anything you like reeeeally.

Red cabbage is rich in several vitamins, including vitamins A, C and K, as well as the minerals potassium and manganese. Vitamin A enhances immunity, aids in growth and development and promotes healthy eyesight. Vitamin C enhances immune system function, promotes gum health and aids in wound healing and collagen production. Vitamin K is essential for building and maintaining strong bones and blood clotting.Plus this dish is raw so your getting all the good stuff!
