    Soy and sesame pickled red cabbage

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus pickling
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 10 minutes, plus pickling

    Serves: 4 as a side

    Ingredients

    pinch chilli flakes
    120ml rice vinegar
    60g caster sugar
    1 tsp sea salt
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
    2 tsp black sesame seeds
    500g red cabbage, outer leaves and core discarded, very finely sliced (use a mandoline if you have one)

    Method

    1. Put all the ingredients except the cabbage in a bowl and whisk together until the sugar and salt crystals have dissolved. Add the cabbage and, with clean hands, toss to combine, massaging the cabbage a little to soften. Cover and chill for a few hours or overnight (it will keep for a day in the fridge). Delicious in leftover turkey sandwiches or as a side with cheese, fish or meat.
