- Create your cabbage noodles "caboodles" by cutting the head of cabbage, root side down, in half. Working with one half at a time, lay the cabbage flat side down. Starting on one end, with the root side facing away from you, cut 1/2" slices into the cabbage. Do not cut all the way to the back where the root end is. This will help hold the cabbage together while you slice. Once you have finished slicing, cut the root end off, and discard any hard, thick pieces. Repeat this with the second half of cabbage.
- In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp of coconut oil over medium heat and add the minced garlic.
- Once the garlic starts to release its aroma, add the cabbage to the pan and cook down, for approximately 20 minutes. Toss the cabbage occasionally to cook evenly.
- Once the cabbage has softened and looks slightly translucent, add the remaining ingredients to the pan and toss the cabbage in the sauce to coat evenly.
- Turn the heat up to medium high and cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the edges of the cabbage to brown.
- Create the orange sauce. Combine water, orange juice, maple syrup, grated ginger, orange zest, coconut aminos, arrowroot flour and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan and whisk together. Heat the sauce over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sauce thickens and begins to look glossy. Remove from heat and set aside.
- In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp of coconut oil over medium high heat.
