Sauteed Cabbage, Apples, & Zucchini

I’m not a big planner when it comes to side dishes. Most weeks, I take time to plan our meals for the week  and I’m usually pretty good about sticking to that plan. (Super Type A, what can I say?) However, oftentimes side dishes get overlooked in my planning and we usually just do something easy like roasted veggies or kale chips. A few weeks ago I found myself with a bunch of random ingredients in the fridge and I was inspired to make a more creative side dish. This zucchini, cabbage, apple combo was what I came up with. I pumped it up with some edamame, which gave it some extra texture to offset all of those shredded ingredients! This is pretty basic and minimally seasoned, but it was a nice change from our standards and one I’ll definitely remember next time we’re side-dish-less!
