Napa Cabbage aka Chinese Cabbage
Producing white leaves at the bottom and pale green leaves at the top, Napa cabbage leaves are somewhat crinkly. Superior in flavor compared to the common cabbage, Napa cabbage is milder.
Napa Cabbage has mild, tender leaves that lend themselves to a wide variety of preparations both raw and cooked. It can be finely shredded to star in a salad or slaw, chopped and steamed or sautéed to accompany a main course, stirred into soups, pickled as a condiment to top rice, or used as a wrap to contain savory fillings.
Cabbage comes in many shades and combinations of green, red, purple and white. The common cabbage is a relative of savoy cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, collard greens and kohlrabi.
