These easy braised cabbage noodles are perfect to serve with any protein — roast chicken, pan fried salmon or my favourite — crispy pork belly.

These cabbage noodles are packed with flavour yet low in carbs. Don't expect these veggie noodles to taste like pasta but do expect them to provide a satisfying low-carb side dish that's infused with butter, lemon and garlic.

I used pointed green cabbage which is perfect for slicing but you could use Savoy cabbage, spring cabbage, white or even red cabbage. Enjoy!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
