Cabbage & Coconut Stir Fry


Cabbage & Coconut Stir Fry

No ratings yet
I am not a big coleslaw person, so I’m always looking for different ways to incorporate cabbage into my meals. This is a wonderful year-round dish – the quick stir fry warms up the cabbage but still leaves it crispy and crunchy, and the sweetness of coconut makes it a pure harmony of flavors.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 small cabbage head, (cored & finely sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon black mustard seeds
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut, (grated)
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper


  • Heat oil in wok over medium heat.
  • Add mustard seeds and let crackle and pop.
  • When popping stops, add grated coconut and let cook for 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Coconut will turn brown and that’s ok!
  • Add cabbage and stir well.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring well. Cabbage should wilt but still have some crunch.
  • Remove from heat and season with sea salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with more coconut and serve immediately. 

Bon appétit!
