  • 10 oz green beans
  • 2 cups white cabbage, shredded

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 red chilis, chopped

  1. Bring water to a boil in a large casserole. Add the quartered potatoes and cook them for 10 minutes. Then give the green beans to the same pot and cook for another 10 minutes until both are soft. Alternatively you can steam the potatoes and beans, which will depend on your steaming device.
  2. While both are cooking, heat a skillet with sesame oil. When it is hot, add the onions and fry them for about 10 minutes until crispy and golden.
  3. Divide potatoes, sliced cabbage, fried onions, shredded carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, bean sprouts, chilis, and green beans in bowls or on plates. Drizzle with a good amount of Gado Gado sauce.
