• 1 green cabbage, sliced

• 2 Tbsp avocado or olive oil

• 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup

• 1 Tbsp whole grain mustard

• 1/2 cup quinoa, cooked

• sea salt

• black pepper

  3. Place cabbage slices on a baking pan.

  5. Drizzle oil mixture over cabbage and gently spread it out using a brush or back of a spoon.
