Cabbage, Carrots & Onions with Sesame Seeds


  • 6 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Walla sweet onion, cut into thin slices
  • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
  • 1 head cabbage, coarsely chopped


serves: 4
dish: side
season: summer, fall

Combine the sesame seeds and salt in a blender. Grind until they achieve the consistency of coarse meal. This is called gomasio or sesame salt. Set aside. Heat a medium-sized wok or large deep skillet. Add the sesame oil and the onions. Stir-fry over med-high heat for a couple of minutes. Add about a tablespoon of the gomasio. Keep stir-frying until the onions are soft and translucent (5-8 minutes). Add carrots and the cabbage, and sprinkle in about half the remaining gomasio. Keep stir-frying until everything is tender (another 10-15 minutes). Sprinkle in the remaining gomasio, and serve.
