Crouching Cabbage, Hidden Mushrooms

Eating greens is good
Like steam-cleaning your innards
With each tasty bite

Crouching Cabbage, Hidden Mushrooms
Asian-Inspired Greens
Okay. One word.
Nuff said.
2 T. Olive Oil
1 t. sesame oil
1 cup onion, sliced
2 T. garlic, chopped
2 cups cabbage, chopped
4 cups Bok Choy, Chopped
2 c. mushrooms
1 T. Rice Vinegar
2 T. Soy Sauce

Service for the day:
My son (10-yr-old marvel kid, Andrew) is offering
free, signed sneak-peaks of his first novel
“The Ghost Portal”
to take him up on his offer
(and make his mama’s day).
And, if you have a marvel kid of your own that might enjoy reading an inventive ghost story, feel free to email THEIR name so Andrew can address the story to them.
Because GOOD snailmail is…
good to get.

    My sister referred me to your blog and I love it!

    However, as a mom challenged by kids who don’t want to eat any vegetable more daring than corn, carrots or broccoli, I have to ask about this particular recipe (that looks delicious to me): do your kids like it, let alone eat it????

    Some of my kids WILL eat this. Bok choy is a VERRRY mild vegetable and is quite child-friendly.

    I WILL share the secret to getting my kids to eat cabbage (and other asian-type greens) is to slice it up real thin–like a noodle–then toss it with udon noodles. With a little soy sauce to color the dish, they can't tell the difference between the noodles and the cabbage. You could do that with this dish. It would lend itself well to the addition of noodles and maybe a bit of chicken or pork. Just slice all the ingredients up real thin like, cook & toss in noodles and I'll bet dollars to yuan they'll eat it.

    Good luck! Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Bless your sister :)

    Hi! This sounds so delicious, I can’t wait to try it. I loved “Lick Your Chops” and the other sayings.
    Btw, my daughters and I received our aprons (from your fab four contest) and we love them! I’ll probably be posting pictures on my blog soon. :)
    Thanks so much!

    This looks so very yummy! And putting it all into one word did somehow make it easier, or was that more fun? I can’t remember now.

    Going to your son’s page now..
