Tis the season for red and green, but adding purple to the mix makes an especially festive dish when you’re cooking up cabbage. A cruciferous rainbow of color, these roasted strips are seasoned with sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds for subtle Asian flavor. Broil them a little longer for crispier crunch!
