Recipe by Happy Hippie
In my quest to introduce my family to new and flavorful vegetables, I went in search of recipes that use napa cabbage. I found this delicious sounding recipe on Yahoo.com. I have not made it as yet but will soon. If you get to it first, please let me and others know what you think of it. NOTE: Cooking and Prep time are "guesstimations" as I have not yet prepared this meal.
