Cabbage is in season and I was given a few from my brother. He receives a weekly vegetable delivery due to a very greatful customer. He doesn't like the stuff, so I had the good fortune of being the recipient.
I looked up some recipes and found this quick and easy method to prepare any type: savoy, red, bok choy, even brussel sprouts. The original recipe calls for honey but I prefer the more robust flavor of maple syrup. It stands up better to the bitterness of the cabbage.
- 1 pound of chopped cabbage
- 30-60 ml of soy sauce
- 60 ml of maple syrup.
- 30 ml sesame seeds, divided
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 3cm cube of ginger, chopped finely
- 15 ml cooking oil - preferably peanut
- 15 ml roasted sesame oil
