The Healthy McHealtherson

WARNING: Could get way too healthy to handle.

Asian cabbage parcels! The veggie version. Vegan, if you want.
(Will turn non-vegetarian if you add fish/mince/egg and fish sauce)

Blanch cabbage leaves (submerge in boiling water for 2 minutes and then run under cold water to stop the cooking process) and keep aside. Toss up a whole bunch of finely chopped veggies in the oil - stuff you'd put in a stir fry. Good stuff to put in would be carrots, corn, mushrooms, cabbage, beet, scallion (spring onions), maybe even tofu. If you eat egg, you could throw in scrambled egg. Toss in a little soy sauce and garlic chilli sauce. Take off the heat.

Lay out a blanched cabbage leaf and cut out some of the hard stem part. Add a little mixture from the stir fry onto one side of the leaf and roll. Steam the "parcel" for a few minutes (3-4 maybe). If you don't have a steamer, boil some water in a pot and put a metal colander on top (not touching the water) and put your parcel in the colander. Serve with a little soy sauce for dipping!
