If you use low sodium soy sauce, you might want to season to taste with a tad bit of salt just after adding the sesame oil.


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 small head cabbage, trimmed and sliced
  • 2 Tbsp, soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp, rice vinegar
  • sesame oil to taste


Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and saute until softened and translucent. Stir in garlic and saute for one minute. Stir in half of the cabbage and saute until it is barely beginning to wilt then stir in the rest of the cabbage and continue to saute until barely beginning to wilt.

Add soy sauce and vinegar and cook until cabbage has wilted to taste, remove from heat, add sesame oil to taste and serve.

This dish is nice to eat with lamb, ham, fish or even chicken.



In a large skillet or wok, saute peas in canola oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and cayenne; saute 1 minute longer. Add basil; toss to combine. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

A flavorful vegetarian dish with lots of variety and satisfying mix. Excellent for special diet needs.

This makes 1 medium sized meal. Just double everything for 2 people, quadruple the recipe for 4 people, and so on. Or divide it in half per serving if making it as a side dish.



  • 1/2-whole sliced medium onion
  • 2-3 thinly sliced medium mushrooms
  • 1/3 bag mixed vegetables (I used frozen Mediteranian mix because it's winter, but fresh is better)
  • a couple Tbsp. Mrs. Dash's no sodium Garlic dressing (or make your own)
  • crumbled sharp chedder Vegan cheese (I used very little due to salt and protein sensitivity).
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • several Tbsp. of virgin olive oil

To make this for anyone without diet needs, add chicken or pork to the mix, use standard cheese or even croutons if you choose.


This can be cooked several ways. I used a "baby" electric frying pan, sauteed the onions lightly then added the mushrooms and lightly sauteed them. I added the frozen vegetables and defrosted them with a lid on the pan. I then added the garlic dressing. Just a few minutes before finishing cooking, added the pepper. When the veggies were on the plate, I added the crumbled cheese.


Play with this, there's a lot of variables, including the amount of Mrs. Dash/dressing, the mix of veggies, the cheese, etc.

It makes a tasty meal that almost makes up for not being able to eat a regular diet. I suggest a slice of salt free bread with it or croutons (preferably home made from the salt free bread).

Servings: 1 meal, so double or quadruple
Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 Minutes

Source: I threw it together in desperation after a violent reaction to sodium and maybe protein as well. I've been told I have failing kidneys, and sodium and protein gives me night cramps and affects RLS.

About 20 minutes before serving, remove any large leaves from broccoli and trim ends if stalks are tough or woody and cut into 2x1/2 inch pieces. Tear romaine into bite size pieces; set aside. In pan over medium heat, fry bacon slices, diced, just until crisp.

In a small skillet, stir fry asparagus and peas in butter and oil for 2 minutes. Add ginger and garlic powder; stir-fry 1 minutes longer.


Combine soy sauce and water; stir into skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

I found a recipe for tofu stir fry. It's delicious, no matter what veggies you want to use. Stir fry veggies in oil, with the white parts of green onion for one minute. Add all but 1 Tbsp of of broth.
