Beansprout & Chinese Cabbage Stir-Fry

This Amazing Beansprout & Chinese Cabbage Stir-Fry recipe is incredible easy to make, and it is a meal that I often make when I’m limited on time!

This cabbage stir-fry recipe makes a delicious substitute for any salad or heavy lunch meals when you’re short on time but don’t want to sacrifice a healthy meal. This cabbage stir-fry tastes like a perfect combination of sweet and savoury and eliminates any cravings for a traditional noodle dish. The dish is an excellent choice and substitute for noodles or pasta if you’re trying to cut down on those.

This recipe consists of wholesome ingredients, with lots of spices, sauces and veggies, so it is a very healthy meal or lunch idea for anyone looking to spice up their meals. 

This recipe takes under 30 minutes to recreate and can easily be enjoyed for days afterwards!

All you need for this recipe is beansprouts, cabbage, mushrooms, tofu, and a couple of veggies, spices and sauces, and there you have your homemade beansprouts and Chinese Cabbage stir-fry!

If you miss out on a bit of “substance” in the form of noodles or rice, this dish will go very well with my Vegan Egg Fried Rice Recipe.

I would recommend garnishes on top of this recipe, such as coriander or chilli, whichever you prefer, to spice up the dish and control the spicy flavours as much as you like. Still, as I mentioned, this dish has the perfect sweet and savoury combination, so I know you will enjoy this recipe regardless of your spice tolerances! 

But let’s first get into one of the reasons behind what makes this recipe so delicious AND healthy!

Is Cabbage Healthy For You?

In short answer; yes! This cabbage-stir fry is incredibly good and healthy for you due to the simple fact that this recipe contains the versatile vegetable cabbage! Cabbage belongs to the broccoli, kale, and cauliflower family, and we all know how healthy those are, so creating more dishes for yourself that contain cabbage can never hurt!

But what mainly makes cabbage stand out a bit is that this cruciferous vegetable is incredibly high in fibre (excellent for anyone, but especially for those of you who are gluten-sensitive). Anything high in fibre is healthy for your gut-flora and digestive system.

But even more so, cabbage also contains high levels of antioxidants, which we want to consume more of to fight the free radicals in our bodies that often lead to inflammation and auto-immune diseases in the body. So, eating cabbage could be just one way of getting back to health!

Cabbage can be cooked in various ways, including boiling, sautéed, fried, steaming, or even being eaten raw.

Is Bean-Sprouts Good For You?

The other half of this incredible dish is Chinese bean sprouts. Even though these sprouts might not look all that appetising at first glance, they taste amazing! You’ll often find this bean-sprout stir-fry in traditional Chinese households and supermarkets (I happen to be so fortunate to have a Chinese supermarket where I live). 

I’m a big fan of many dishes from around the world, and it is often dishes like this that you’ll see me cooking, and I do this for a reason: Because veggies like these are incredibly healthy!

Bean sprouts are high in protein, antioxidants, fibre, healthy fats, low in calories, and lots of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, so they are a good option for getting more healthy nutrients!

You can eat them raw, boil them or stir-fry them, but eating them raw isn’t recommended for everyone, so making sure you cook them thoroughly is my recommendation.

So with no further explanation, let’s cook!
