This recipe will make 4 servings, and can be made in the microwave oven in 30 to 45 minutes, including preparation time.

Wash and clean the veggies, and peel onions.

Cut the onions and cabbage into bite-sized chunks, slice the turnips and cut the slices into bite-sized cubes.

Place the cut veggies in a large covered baking dish, add the ginger and hot sauce, mix well, cover, and cook until the veggies are tender (mixing occasionally).

While the veggies are cooking, pour the vinegar and molasses into a measuring cup, add the soy sauce or Bragg Aminos, add the cornstarch and mix well. 

When the turnips, cabbage and onions are cooked, check to see if there is any liquid in the bottom of the baking dish, and add additional cornstarch to the sauce as necessary, and mix well (1 tbsp. cornstarch will thicken 1 cup of sauce).

Add the sauce to the veggies in the baking dish, mix well, cover, and cook for another 3-5 minutes to make sure the sauce has thickened and the flavors have blended.  Mix well before serving.

Serve and enjoy!
