Napa

(Napa)  Napa cabbage is the most popular family of Chinese cabbages seen in the supermarkets of the West and Orient.  When matured, the plant forms a head with leaves and petioles.  This head-forming vegetable is very tender and delicious whether eaten raw, in salads, or cooked.  It is also the least nutritious of  the Chinese cabbages.  We could not find the nutritional data for the raw vegetable, but the nutrition chart for cooked napa is below.  Compare this chart with that of bok choy to see the differences.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-6)
