Cabbage, Carrots & Onions with Sesame Seeds
| serves: 4|
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.
