Winter Squash and Savoy Cabbage with Toasted Sesame Seeds

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
This is one of my favorite combinations and has been for many years. The naturally sweet flavors of the squash, cabbage, and onion are rounded out by the nuttiness of toasted sesame seeds and dark sesame oil. I particularly enjoy this with brown rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 5 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled butternut squash (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 8 cups coarsely chopped Savoy or green cabbage
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
