If you've ever been to a Korean restaurant, you may be familiar with lettuce wraps (ssangchu ssam). But just as popular in Korean households is steamed green cabbage wraps (yangbaechu ssam).
Green cabbage is briefly steamed till soft and translucent, topped with rice and ssamjang (korean dipping sauce), wrapped up and eaten in one bite. When steamed, cabbage becomes slightly sweet and chewy, making it an amazing wrap base.
If you'd like, fill your wrap with whatever Korean side dishes you have along with rice and ssamjang, and you've got yourself a flavor and nutrient packed meal.
Since cabbage shrinks when steamed, 2-3 people can finish a whole head of cabbage in one sitting. It's a great way to get your greens in without too much effort.
