Print Cabbage and sesame stir-fry

Make this quick, Asian-flavoured vegetarian side with any kind of cabbage, or with kale or pak choi. It goes well with other oriental dishes, or could be a healthy light meal with some brown rice.


  • 450g cabbage (any kind or a mix of leaves including kale & pak choi), very finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp light oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2cm fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a wok or heavy based pan then sauté the garlic and ginger for just one minute.
  2. Add the cabbage and stir-fry for 3-5 minutes until just tender.
  3. Stir in the soy sauce and cook for 1 minute. Sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and serve.
