This is a delicious speedy stir fry sauce to add flavour to your favourite vegetables.

Cabbage is the highlight here as this leafy green is not only loaded with Vitamin C, it is also rich in phytochemicals and glucosinolates, a sulfur containing compound with fantastic health benefits that may be cancer protective. It absorbs the sweetness of the miso, and the nuttiness of the sesame oil making it as delicious as it is nutritious. The sauce also has a high fat content (the good fat) meaning it helps to keep you fuller for longer.
