Recipe Ideas: Chinese/Napa Cabbage

This week's share included one head of Chinese cabbage, also referred to as Napa cabbage. This is the same type of cabbage that Koreans use to make kimchi.

Something tells us that very few of you are planning to use your cabbage to make kimchi, but if you are, let us know -- we'd love to hear about it!

How are you planning to use your cabbage from this week's share? If you need ideas, here are a few:

What are your ideas for using Napa cabbage? Let us know in the comments!

We made a stir fry using a lot of the veggies: kohlrabi, turnip, cabbage, carrots, shitake mushrooms, bok choy... the sauce we made was a very simply combo.

Served it all over quinoa. DELICIOUS!

Super easy but we made the best soup with vegtable broth, chinese cabbage, carrots, garlic, leek and onion. A little smoked paprika and cilantro at the end and it was delicious!


My husband like to make roll-ups with the leaves, using chicken salad, tuna salad, or even stir-fried meats with vegetables. He is on a very restricted diet for Saturated Fats, as he has hereditary high-cholesterol. He also tries to keep his consumption of refined carbs down, so this way he gets his favorite roll-up sandwiches with a healthy twist.


Was very daunted by the cabbage but so far, have made stuffed cabbage leaves (filling was pan fried marinated tofu and rice) with tomato and white bean sauce baked on top. Also made a cabbage salsa with black beans, lime, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, and cilantro, all served over rice. Actually found a recipe for quick kimichi and am thinking of trying it out!


I'm debating between a slaw with grated carrot and cider vinegar, 5 spice powder, a little dark sesame oil and agave--or one with lime juice, fish sauce, sri racha and cilantro. Certainly there's enough to do both. The kimchi is tempting too.
