  • 1 medium Napa cabbage
  • 1 tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • tsp. red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil or to taste
  • ½ tbsp. sesame seeds


  • Remove the outer leaves off the cabbage and slice the cabbage into thick (about 1 inch wide) strips.
  • In a large non-stick pan heat the oil on medium-high heat. Add oil, garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes and stir. Cook for about 1 minute.
  • At this point add the Napa cabbage, soy sauce, paprika, and vinegar. Stir-fry for about 5-7 minutes, until the cabbage softened nicely.
  • Transfer the cabbage onto a serving platter. Drizzle with the sesame oil and garnish with sesame seeds. Serve warm.





Since you're more than likely going to have leftovers of this dish, it's important to make certain to store it correctly so that you can reheat and enjoy it at a later point in time.
The easiest way to store this dish is to put any leftovers into an airtight container and keep it in the fridge. This should keep it fresh for a couple of days, giving you some time to consume as you can.
When you're ready to reheat, you can simply add it into your pan and sauté back to the perfect temperature. You can also put it into a microwave-safe container and bring it up to temp that way, too.
