I have always loved Indian spices and cooking. If you own one of my HCG Diet Gourmet Cookbooks you will know that I introduce cooking with Garam Masala as one of my favorite spices. Both of my Phase 2 cookbooks feature recipes with Garam Masala which has a lovely hint of sweet and savory and combines beautifully with curry and turmeric for a deliciously flavorful Phase 2 vegetable dish.
This Roasted Indian Spiced Cabbage recipe is delicious when served with any of the HCG Phase 2 proteins. Try it topped with chicken, beef, and grilled shrimp. The cabbage gets a little brown and crispy and I’ve added a touch of stevia for a just a little sweetness.
In addition to tasting delicious, the ingredients and Indian spices in this recipe are well known for their health benefits. Turmeric is a powerful anti inflammatory. Cayenne Pepper is helpful as a digestive aid, immune booster, and can even support your weight loss with the HCG Diet. One of the primary ingredients in Garam Masala is Cinnamon which has health benefits that include lowering blood sugar and assisting with weight loss.
I hope you enjoy this delicious and flavorful Roasted Indian Cabbage Recipe on your HCG Phase 2! Enjoy!
