  • ¼ cup Water
  • 2 tbsp Butter or vegan butter
  • 1-2 tbsp soy sauce

  2. When the cooking is done, open the pot and add the butter and soy sauce. Stir, and serve on a plate, seasoned with fresh ground black pepper.


Sometimes a recipe has a depth of flavor that is at odds with the simple ingredients list you used to create it. Well, this steamed cabbage with soy sauce is one of those food enigmas that tastes much greater than the sum of its parts.

At its core, is the humble cabbage – a veggie staple since… well, the dawn of vegetables. 

On the periphery (but just as important) is a simple combination of soy sauce and butter. Now you can use vegan butter – or the real stuff if you prefer. Either way, when those two titans of taste combine, it imparts a savory richness and depth of flavor to the steamed cabbage leaves that’s tough to beat.

Seriously, if you’re wondering what to make with that head of cabbage that’s been sitting in your crisper drawer forever, this is that recipe.

And it’s so easy to make in your rice cooker!
