I love the Korean dish called ‘Namul’. Any kind of vegetables can be used and it can be seasoned with a variety of seasonings including Salt, Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce and many other condiments. I understand ‘Namul’ and Japan’s ‘Aemono’ are same type of dish, that is basically seasoned vegetables.
I usually season ‘Namul’ with a small amount of grated Garlic, Salt and Sesame Oil, and a hint of Soy Sauce. Even a very small amount of Garlic can be overwhelming, so do not add too much. This mildly seasoned cabbage salad is so easy & quick to prepare. Just make sure you toast Sushi Nori just before adding it to the salad, and serve the salad immediately after adding it.
5 to 6 leaves Red Cabbage *200g, thinly sliced
