This boiled napa cabbage is very simple to make and does not take long. I decided to use napa cabbage to make a healthy dish. Napa cabbage helps protect your body from cancer.
Sometimes when you buy a napa cabbage, it is very dirty and needs to be washed 3-4 times. This time the napa cabbage is not very dirty. I soak it in water and wash it 2 times to be sure it is clean. You don’t need to use all the napa since it is big. A napa cabbage can make a lot of combination food. Like chicken, ham, bacon and rice noodles. This time I just boiled the napa cabbage alone.
I boiled the napa cabbage until tender. Easier to eat. Boil food is very healthy. It does not contain any salt or oil. Once tender, that means it is ready. Nappa cabbage is a very good vegetable to eat. I like it stir-fried, but this time I did a little different by boiling the napa cabbage.
If you are a vegetarian. Napa can be a perfect dish to make since it is only a vegetable without any meat that you can enjoy.
Kids and adults would love this dish. A healthy dish that you can have with rice and noodles. It is very delicious, and I like it a lot. If you make a lot you can have it through the day without having to make a vegetable dish. This can be an amazing and fast dish to make for dinner or lunch. Try the recipe and enjoy.
Washing the napa cabbage:
1. In the fridge, take out a napa cabbage.
2. Take a mid-size container and place it in the sink. Take out another strainer and put it on the other sink.
3. Peel off as many pieces of napa cabbage as you needed directly into the big container.
4. Whatever is leftover, wrap it with a plastic wrapper and place it in the fridge.
5. Fill the container with cold water. Turn it upside down and shake it in the water. Then rinse it.
(Note: Make sure all the dirty stuff is out and each vegetable is clean.)
6. For each piece that’s wash place it in the other sink strainer.
7. Wash the napa cabbages 3-4 times.
8. Each time you finish washing a batch. Make sure to change the water from the container.
(note: when you see no more dirty stuff in the container water, that means the napa cabbage is clean.)
9. Once finish washing the cabbage. Put it aside.
1. Take out a cutting board and a knife.
2. In the cupboard, take out a mixing bowl and put it in the sink.
3. In the strainer, take a handful full of napa cabbage and cut it into pieces and put it into the mixing bowl.
(Note: Cutting into small pieces can cook faster.)
4. Repeat the same steps for the rest of the napa cabbage.
5. When all cut into pieces, set the mixing bowl aside.
1. In the cupboard, take out a large pan.
2. Place it on the stove.
3. Pour some water into the large pan. If there is not enough water, then you can add more.
(note: Add just the right amount of water that you need to boil the napa cabbage.)
4. Turn on the heat to high and cover the lid.
5. Wait until the water is boiling.
6. When the water is boiling, add the napa cabbage into a large pan and cover the lid.
(Note: Make sure all the napa cabbage is on the water and nothing is sticking out.)
8. Once the water starts boiling, open the lid and keep the lid off.
(Note: Keeping the cover off will prevent the vegetable from not having a good colour.)
9. Take a piece and taste, if tender. If tender, that means it is ready. If not needs to cook a bit longer.
10. Once it’s ready, turn off the heat and place all the napa cabbage on a plate and place it on the table.
