Here at Moloa’a Organica’a, we really appreciate your support during this challenging and unique time. We hope you go home tomorrow excited about all the delicious, organic veggies in your new farm share box. In fact we love ya so much that we wanted to share some of our favorite recipes and tips with you! Here’s just a few ideas for this week's box.

Here are 6 easy things to do with your Napa Cabbage:


1. Soup: Add a cup or two of shredded napa cabbage to virtually any soup. Napa is especially good in miso soup. One easy idea is to make a simple miso soup broth and just add some steamed chopped Napa, quick, easy, delicious!


2. Quick Kimchi: Kimchi is a Korean lacto-fermented pickled Napa Cabbage dish. It usually involves a long brine time in an airtight container mixed with hot pepper, onions, and garlic. However, you can make a quick and easy overnight version. Just take about 3 cups of shredded Napa Cabbage, add a Tablespoon or so of Sriracha (or other Korean garlic-hot pepper sauce), about 3 Tablespoons of rice or white wine vinegar, 4 chopped Garlic cloves, and a half teaspoon or so of salt – Mix it all together and let chill overnight in the fridge.


3. Slaw. Do you have a favorite Coleslaw recipe? Just chop napa cabbage along with the standard cabbage and mix with some veganaise, lemon juice, salt, and pepper for a unique and delicious summer salad!


4. Stuffed. Blanch whole Napa leaves until they just wilt. Stuff with beans, rice, tempeh– whatever! The sky is the limit with this one.


5. Stir Fry: If you’ve ever eaten a stir fry at an Asian restaurant, there’s a good chance there was Napa Cabbage in your stir-fry. There’s a million ways to add Napa to a Stir fry, separating the white stems and dicing them into one inch squares can make for a nice presentation. Don’t throw the green part out though – just add it to the stir fry toward the end (since it takes less time to cook).


6. Spring Rolls: add Napa cooked or raw to a mix of shredded carrots, chopped green beans and lettuce, moringa, bean thread noodles…and wrap in spring roll rice paper wrappers. Serve with an asian style dipping sauce or peanut sauce!
