10-Minute Lightly Pickled Cabbage with Granulated Soup Stock

10-Minute Lightly Pickled Cabbage with Granulated Soup Stock

This is great for when you have leftover cabbage or you want a small dish to go with drinks.

Ingredients

Cabbage
2~3 leaves
Granulated stock (I used kombu stock this time)
about 4 g

Steps

1. If you're using a stick of granulated dashi, measuring will be easy. 1 stick usually contains 8 g, so just use half.
2. Finely shred the cabbage and put it in a plastic bag. Sprinkle the dashi over the cabbage and rub it in well.
3. Leave the cabbage to sit for 10 minutes and it's done! (If you still feel that the cabbage isn't pickled enough, rub the dashi in once more and leave it to sit for another 5 minutes.)

Story Behind this Recipe

I want to cut out pre-made pickling mix from my diet. I tried some stock granules and thought that they would work well too.
