less than 1/3 teaspoon (1 scant tablespoon if dashi stock)
Half-mill the sesame and add the sugar, soy sauce and dashi stock.
Wash the cabbage, cut into easy to eat sizes, wrap and microwave for 30 seconds at 500W. Turn over and microwave for a further 30 seconds.
Put the cabbage into cold water to fix the colour.
Squeeze the water from the cabbage and toss with the sesame from step 1 to finish.
Story Behind this Recipe
I want something green in my bento every day, and wanted to use cabbage instead of spinach to make it.
The sesame will be nice and aromatic if you toast it in a pan over a medium heat for 30 seconds. Keep an eye on the cabbage in the microwave. If it still looks raw, microwave for another 10-20 seconds. If you use the deep green outer leaves, it might taste bitter.
