Napa cabbage with white radish and tofu (using an old rice cooker with congee funtion)

This boiled napa cabbage with white radish and tofu is simple to make. I decided to use an old-style rice cooker with a congee function. I did not add any seasoning. Just simple and natural. It is very healthy and does not contain any oil.
All you need to do is separate the napa cabbage, as many as you need to boil in a mixing bowl. If you see dirty stuff in the cabbage. The needs to be washed 3-4 times. First, shake the cabbage in the water and rinse and place it in a strainer. Continue washing until the water is clear without any dirty stuff. Once it is clean, set it aside.
If the white radish is too big, you can cut it in half and save the other half to use next time. Rinse and peel the skin. Place the knife at an angle and cut into pieces directly into a mixing bowl. Then rinse and set it aside.
I decided to use silk tofu because it is soft and easy to eat. You just need to remove water from the package and cut into pieces directly in the package. The silk tofu is boiled in the rice cooker last because they cook fast.
First, I cook the white radish because they take longer to cook. It takes about 20-30 minutes. To know if it’s tender. Insert a large toothpick. If it goes through, that means it is ready. Second, I cook the napa cabbage. Boil until it is tender. Don’t overcook the napa cabbage, or it will not taste good. Third, I pour the package of cut tofu into the rice cooker. Boil the tofu until the water starts boiling and let sit in the boiling water for 1-2 minutes.. When ready, put it onto a plate and set it aside.
Kids and adults would love these boiled napa cabbage with white radish and tofu . It’s healthy and very delicious. I like it a lot. You can have these for lunch or dinner. The best combination that goes well with this dish is rice or noodles. The boiling water that is left in the rice cooker, you can drink it as a soup or use it as a soup base for noodles. Boiling food is very healthy. It is very delicious, and I like it a lot. When you want to eat healthy, you can boil nappa cabbage with white radish and tofu. Try the recipe and enjoy.
