warm sesame cabbage slaw

i love the bagged dole/generic slaw mixes you can buy at the grocery store - usually for 99 cents! i usually keep at least one or two in my fridge at all times for quick lunches or dinner additions. if you check my tags for cabbage, you'll see quite a few recipes because it can be used in so many genres of food. this recipe is just a nice warm sesame slaw that i make for small lunches or dinner sides.

  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 pkg. dole slaw mix (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons bragg liquid aminos
  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter (earth balance)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
heat sesame oil on medium-high heat in a large non-stick skillet. add in the cabbage and sauté for 1-2 minutes on medium-high heat. mix in the rest of ingredients except sesame seeds (the margarine is optional, but gives it more savory flavor). continue sautéing for about 5 minutes, until the cabbage is tender. add in the sesame seeds and give it a couple more tosses before removing from heat.

serve warm. i really like to give it a light coat of the ginger-miso dressing from matthew kenney's everyday raw. the book is awesome, so you should definitely pick up a copy. in the meantime, you can find the dressing recipe here.

I love black sesame seeds! This looks great. I need to do more of this type of food. I am big into the fried foods and sweets. Bad vegan! :)

I'm glad I found another cabbage eater in you. Dontcha think it's such a misunderstood veggie? Gotta admit it's crunchy and plays well with others :)
