Vegan “Corned Beef and Cabbage”

Who says you can’t enjoy a “take” on Corned Beef and Cabbage, even when it isn’t St. Patrick’s Day? The mustard seeds in the brown mustard can help lower blood pressure and assist in red blood cell formation. Plus, mustard seeds have a high selenium content that can help improve bone strength.

Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
