Cabbage Fried Rice (Gluten-Free, Low FODMAP Optional)

As I mentioned recently on Instagram, one of Charlie’s intentions for this year is to give up meat. Which means, I’ve been poring over the Feed Me Phoebe archives for inspiration and pulling recipes like this Cabbage Fried Rice out of the attic.

The reason for his decision was a little documentary called Game Changers. There’s a particular scene in the middle of the film that involves data on the capacity for more erections on a plant-based diet that may be the most effective piece of vegan propaganda I’ve ever seen.

Needless to say, I’m thrilled about this change, as much for the virility potential as for the impact it will have on furthering our low waste ethos. To that effect, vegetable fried rice is a wonderful two-for-one as it’s a fantastic way to use up leftover grains, especially any rice languishing from past takeout orders.

Head of Savoy CabbageVegetable Fried Rice in a WokVegetable Fried Rice in a Wok

The star of this vegetarian fried rice is Napa or Savoy cabbage. These varieties are less dense with curly, textured leaves that are perfect for stir-frying. You’ll find that the cabbage melts down in this recipe but also becomes gorgeously charred if you use a heavy-bottomed pan or wok that can radiate the appropriate about of heat.

My version, as always, is gluten-free and it can also be adapted to be low FODMAP by reducing the cabbage quantity slightly and omitting the alliums. Being vegetarian AND low FODMAP is always a challenge, so this would be a perfect dish to add to your arsenal that has a good ratio of veggies to rice and isn’t too carb-heavy.

I originally developed this dish for Food & Wine Magazine as a year-round vegetarian fried rice, since cabbage is always in season, even in the depths of winter. It’s always amazing to read over old …

Free Fall: Forgoing Coping Mechanisms for Real Vulnerability

We tried an intense social justice training designed to help us serve a higher purpose. Here’s what we learned about trauma, transformation, and taking care of yourself.

I’m standing in a circle of 30-some people in a rustic yoga studio, peering through oversize windows at the lush, soggy woods outside—and trying my absolute best not to dissociate. It’s the last day of a five-day Yoga, Purpose, and Action leadership training with the yoga and social justice organization Off the Mat, Into the World. Cofounders Seane Corn and Suzanne Sterling, along with facilitator RW Alves, are reading self-identifying statements aloud, such as, “If you have family and friends who are incarcerated…” “If you or someone you know has had an eating disorder…” And “If you have an advanced degree…”

The exercise, called the Ally Circle, goes like this: When you hear something that applies to you, you step into the middle of the circle and notice who else is there and who isn’t. It feels a little bit like an emotionally charged, high-stakes version of that game called Never Have I Ever. But instead of earning cachet by admitting to having sex in a public space or smoking a joint before high school, I’m about to reveal the things I’m most ashamed of. My heart is pounding, and my thoughts are on fire: I don’t want these people, many of whom were strangers a week ago, to know any more about me. I inadvertently label some of the statements “good” and others “bad.” (And then noticing my own biases and judgments, I feel guilty about them.) I warm up with the questions about higher education and eating disorders. When I hear them, I take tentative steps toward the middle of the circle and realize that while I may be …
