For the garlic butter sauce

2 tablespoons of garlic chopped fine

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoons of vegan worchester sauce ( Granovita). Or use 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar with 1 teaspoon sugar salt and pepper to taste.



Steam beans, carrots and broccoli and stir fry with a bit of garlic and keep aside.

Now stir fry the spinach in a bit of garlic and keep aside.

Cut potatoes into wedges or fries and grill them as well in a pan.

Heat the metal sizzler plate on direct flame for 10 to 12 minutes.

For the garlic butter sauce

Heat a pan and add the oil with the butter. Now add the garlic and sauté for a bit. To this add a glass of water and simmer for a minute or two. Then add a slurry of cornflour and water and mix well. Now add soya and woschester sauce and let it boil till it thickens a little bit.

Now arrange the cabbage leaves on the plate. Put the spaghetti in the centre. Arrange the vegetables around the spaghetti or rice. Now pour the sauce over the vegetables and watch them sizzle. Serve immediately.

Extra tips: Make sure the metal platter is smoking hot before you arrange the veggies. To make the corn starch slurry, always mix cornflour with cold water.
