How to make this one-pot Asian cabbage & rice
First, you will need to chop the cabbage very finely and cut each tomato into 8 cubes. To bash the lemongrass you can use a rolling pin or a pestle.
Start by frying the onion, garlic, ginger and ground coriander in olive oil. Add the finely chopped cabbage and cubed tomatoes with some vegetable stock and cook covered for 30 minutes until the cabbage is cooked.
Don’t forget to stir from time to time so that the cabbage does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Next, you need to add the tomato paste, 10-minute cook Jasmine rice, coconut milk, some more vegetable stock and 1 Tbsp of tamari and cook covered for 15 minutes. By then the rice should be cooked. If it is not done, keep cooking the dish for a few more minutes.
Add the aduki beans and chopped coriander to the pan. Season with lime juice, a bit more tamari sauce if needed and some salt. When ready, serve the one-pot Asian cabbage & rice with some chopped fresh red chillies and extra lime juice on top. Enjoy!
