  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 1/2 Cabbage head, sliced thinly
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 2 cups bean sprouts (togue)
  • 2 tbsp Kikkoman Soy sauce
  • 12 tsp sesame oil


  1. Heat oil and butter in a pan.
  2. Sauté the onions for 30 seconds and add add the carrots and stir-fry for about 30 seconds.
  3. Then add the remaining veggies: cabbage and bean sprouts.
  4. Drizzle with the kikkoman soy sauce and stir fry for about 2 minutes, when vegetables are cooked but still crunchy.
  5. Drizzle with sesame oil and give it a final stir.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate.
  7. You may add more seasoning to taste but I find the 2 tbsp of soy sauce enough.
  8. Serve with your main dish and/or steamed rice.
