Have you ever found yourself with a head of cabbage and no idea what to do with it?
Ok, maybe that is not such a common problem. BUT, I was recently in just that predicament and the result was one of the absolute best recipes I have ever made. (Trust me: Not one, but TWO friends told me after trying my creation that it was “the best thing I’ve ever had!”) I looked up recipes, but none were too enticing… and one can only eat so much Weight Watchers cabbage soup. Then I noticed a cabbage wrap and thought… Brilliant! A wrap sans bread. But what do I have around to fill it….
Behold. The roasted chicken cabbage wrap. It’s simple. It’s delicious. It’s simply delicious. Next time you find yourself with a head of cabbage and no idea what to do with it, try this. Trust me.
- Cabbage leaves (as full and large as possible)
- Alfalfa sprouts
- Roasted chicken (I just get a roasted chicken from Publix or Fresh Market but you can use fresh chicken breast or whatever is convenient)
- Goat cheese
- Goddess dressing (Note: Go easy on this… a little goes a long way and it is quite thick. Sometimes I thin mine out by mixing it with olive oil to make it more of a drizzle than a glop.)
Take your cabbage leaf and place a few slices of the chicken, a good amount of alfalfa sprouts, a sprinkle of goat cheese, a few slices of avocado, and a drizzle of dressing to finish it off. Simply roll it like a wrap or, if you were overly ambitious with your portions, fold it like a taco. That. Is. It. So simple. So delicious.
Try it, and let me know what you think.
