Spicy Sesame Cabbage

Cabbage is so cheap! And supposedly good for you, I keep trying to make it work. Here is my latest (and most successful) attempt.


1/2 head of Savoy cabbage
2 T. sesame oil
2 T. soy sauce
2-3 T. rice vinegar
Sea salt to taste
1/4 t. cayenne pepper, or more, if you like things particularly spicy
1/4 c. sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Slice the cabbage into fine ribbons, and heat the sesame oil in a pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes, until the cabbage is tender, but still lets out a gentle crunch when you bite in. Reduce the flame to low, and add the soy sauce and rice vinegar. Stir, and taste. Add a few grinds of sea salt, and the cayenne pepper, to taste. Stir in the toasted seeds right before serving.

Comments: I didn’t get any sesame seeds, although I’m sure it’d be better with them. It was still tasty. Not too spicy, next time I’d increase the cayenne. Repeat-worthy.
