1 cup shredded purple cabbage

How to Prepare
Cook brown rice (or cauliflower rice) according to package instructions or add 1 ¼ cups of water and 1 cup of brown rice to a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Lightly season with sea salt. Cover and cook for 25 to 40 minutes (depending upon the brand). Once the rice is cooked, set it to the side to cool.
Next, add coconut oil to a large sauté pan over medium heat. Once the oil has melted, add garlic, ginger, bell pepper, and onion. Sauté for about 3 minutes, then add carrots, cabbage, and broccoli florets. Lightly season with sea salt and black pepper and mix well. Add about ¼ cup of water to the pot and cover. Steam the vegetables for less than 5 minutes until they have a bright color and are tender, but not mushy.
***Chicken option: If you are cooking this recipe with chicken breasts, lightly season the chicken with sea salt and black pepper. Cut into bite-sized pieces and add to the pan with the garlic, ginger, bell pepper, and onion. Sauté until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Add the remaining vegetables for steaming.
Add the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well. If the sauce is thick, add water. Mix well, then pour the sauce over the vegetables. Sauté until heated through and set to the side to cool.
Serve the stir fry over cooked brown rice.
