Many people skip napa cabbage because they have no idea what to do with this Asian vegetable. Surely, it is not an ordinary cabbage that you add to salads, soups, and stews. But its unique taste, similar to bok choy and celery, can make you fall in love with napa cabbage.
I love experimenting with new healthy vegetables and fruit, so napa cabbage was not an exception. Here is what I have already tried to cook with napa cabbage and what I highly recommend making.
When it comes to napa cabbage, the first word that comes to our minds is of course kimchee. I am not a big fan of spicy meals, but skipping this popular Korean side dish when experimenting with napa cabbage recipes is a crime. Although there are many kimchee recipes, I chose the easiest and quickest one.
All you need to do is to mix 3-5 cups of chopped napa cabbage, a tablespoon of hot sauce like sambal oelek, 3 sliced garlic cloves, 2-3 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar, and a pinch of salt ( I skipped salt), and let it sit overnight. The next day, stir well and enjoy.
