Let it sit in a colander in the sink for about twenty minutes after you’ve massaged the salt into the cabbage, then rinse well and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.

Today I made plant based tacos using leftover no-beef tofu crumbles, cooked mushrooms, avocado, red kidney beans and the quick pickled cabbage. Tasty, nutritious and delicious.

It really does not take all that much effort to cook really good plant based meals, once you learn how to make a few things. The benefits to you health can be enormous. Why not think about at least adding one or two completely plant based meals to your routine every week?
