A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into this dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don?t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own!
1. Heat oil in a large pot and add cabbage. Season with salt and pepper and stir-fry for about 5 minutes, until it begins to get soft. Add bean sprouts, snow peas, carrots and stir fry for about 2 more minutes.
2. Whisk together the soya sauce, honey, sesame oil, lime juice and add to the cabbage along with the cilantro leaves. Toss well and adjust seasoning.
