Sweet and sour red cabbage with baby carrots is a relatively quick and easy recipe that can be made in a microwave or conventional oven, or in a wok. It is great as a main dish, side dish, or as a tortilla or pita stuffing. It will make 6-12 servings depending on how it is served. Preparation time is about 15 minutes, and cooking time can be as short as 20 minutes in a wok to an hour in a conventional oven.

Begin by washing, cleaning, and peeling the fresh vegetables, as needed (baby carrots only need to be rinsed under running water in a colander).

Coarsely shred or cut the red cabbage and onions, and place in the cooking vessel. Add the baby carrots.

If desired, crush the garlic and add to the veggies. Add the ginger, mix well and cook until tender. If you are stir frying in a wok, stir fry in a little water. If cooking in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F., mix well every 10 minutes to ensure uniform cooking. If cooking in the microwave oven, mix well after 10 minutes, and then every 5 minutes until cooked.

While the veggies are cooking, place the cider vinegar, 1/2 cup water, soy sauce or Bragg Aminos, dates or stevia, and corn starch in the container of a high speed blender, cover, and blend at high speed until the contents are smooth.

When the veggies are cooked, add the sauce and mix well until the sauce thickens, and immediately remove from the heat.

Serve and enjoy!

They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
