This healthy recipe combines the satisfying creaminess of avocado with the crunch of cabbage. You will also enjoy the health benefits of the high levels of glucosinolates (which are the sulfur-containing compounds responsible for their pungent aromas and unique taste) and cartenoids (yellow, orange, or red fat-soluble pigments which give color to plant parts) both which may prevent or reduce the risk of cancer). * You can also use sunflower or pumpkin seeds instead of hemp seeds. *The Sea Salt we personally use is Celtic Sea Salt (Light grey).
6 cups of purple and green cabbage, finely shredded 1 small red, orange,or yellow pepper, chopped 1 ripe avocado, diced 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped 3 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 cup shelled hemp seeds 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl until the avocado is creamy throughout.
