Another quick and easy healthy recipe from the talented chefs at Amity Wellness Retreat in Thailand. You can easily swap out the cabbage for lettuce or green leafy vegetable of your choice and use the same filling to mix it up or change the dressing to create different themes. Why not try a Mexican style theme by adding black beans to the cabbage cups and create a simple cashew, lime and chipotle chili sauce.

1/4 cup carrot
1/8 cup tomatoes
1/4 cup jicama or celery or raw zucchini peeled and diced

1 tbsp gluten free tamari or soy sauce
