Lemon tahini Napa cabbage

It’s friggin’ hot here right now. We went from 60 to 95 degrees in a matter of weeks. This is the earliest that I ever remember getting fruit on my tomato plants!!

I barely want to eat. Trying to keep things cool and easy….with not-quite-yet summer produce. (This was the first week we had some decent raspberries and cherries in the store, although certainly not locally grown).

I had a small Napa cabbage to use up and threw this one together to go alongside some facon feeb burgers. That’s plant-based bacon burgers for those not familiar with my fake meat language. It was also an excuse to use some fresh dill from the planters. My snake solution appears to be working!!

I am very much looking forward to going North this weekend to cool off at the lake!

Lemon tahini Napa Cabbage slaw

  • Small Napa cabbage, halved lengthwise
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini paste
  • Several sprigs fresh dill

Drizzle olive oil over cut cabbage and season with salt and pepper.

Grill 6-8 minutes per side until charred and wilted.

Mix lemon juice and tahini until smooth, thin with water (about 2 tbsp) and season with salt and pepper.

Slice cabbage. Drizzle with lemon tahini sauce and top with dill.

Keep cool 😎

    1. Alive, yes. “Well” – as you know – is subjective. Lots of inward focus and healing. I have a backlog of recipes to post when I find the energy! I thought of you this weekend when I made a beautiful Salad Nicoise with a lovely Cotes de Provence rose! ❤️

      1. Totally agree. Pink for pink ❤️

        I went to the VanGogh Immersive Experience yesterday and it was just the tonic I needed! I wrestled with how I felt about technology being applied to art, and reconciled that they made something old new again for today’s audience. It was quite interesting and I enjoyed it enough to watch twice from dift vantage points. It reminded me that artists simply experience the world in a unique way and the necessary Expression is core to the soul
