CABBAGE WRAPS WITH SPICY PEANUT DIPPING SAUCE

Napa cabbage makes the most delicious wrap, I can’t believe I’m just discovering it!  And isn’t everything in life just better with peanut sauce?  I mean, not EVERYTHING, but definitely most things!  Case in point: noodles. Noodles with peanut sauce will have saved lives.  And cabbage wraps with spicy peanut dipping sauce will increase your chances of winning one of those crazy powerball lotteries where there’s like $75 million at stake. I don’t know how or why, but I’m sure it will.  So…. What are you waiting for?  xx- Sarah {more after the jump}

    Since I don't have the luxury of making my own tortillas I love using lettuce, cabbage or swiss chard for wraps! Will try your peanut dip. Thanks and Happy Nesting!

    You've done it again! A mouth-watering picturesque meal! AGAIN! Jeeeeeze, Sarah, you're good!

    This looks awesome, but seriously, the photos look even better.

    As you know, I made the raspberry chia jam last night–huge success, and how could it not be coming from you!–and have already shared the recipe (reluctanlty) with my friend. I wanted to eat that jam straight out the jar; can't wait to surprise the man with it for breakfast on the weekend.

    Cheers.

    Hi, could you tell me what is low sodium tamari? And if not easily available around, can I substitute it with any other ingredient.?
    Thanks

    This recipe looks absolutely DELICIOUS and I can’t wait to try it. I just wanted to point out that your tag about this being vegan is inaccurate. Since it contains honey, and honey is an animal byproduct, it is not vegan. An excellent looking recipe, still!
