Intentional Minimalist: Cabbage wraps

In this recipe, warm red cabbage is paired with a verjus mustard dressing, dried cranberries and savory seeds. Enjoy sweet, savory and a nice crunch from the pac choi wraps and turnips.

No comment on how many of these little beauties I savored. And what a lovely farm-to-table Valentine’s Day foodie present for your loved one.

This recipe features local produce from 9 Bean Rows Farm, Providence Farm, Birch Point Farm and locally produced products from Food for Thought and Black Star Farms.
