Cooking Winter Vegetables with Andrea Chesman: Stir-Fried Cabbage


| 9/27/2011 12:15:44 PM


The presentations at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR were high in attendance. Everyone was excited and ready to learn! One of the Day 1 presentations included a cooking demonstration from Andrea Chesman, author of Recipes from the Root Cellar (Storey Publishing, 2010). In her demonstration, Cooking with Winter Vegetables, she prepared a couple of dishes using her favorite winter vegetables: root vegetables, hearty greens and winter squash. She was kind enough to share another delicious-sounding recipe with me. Enjoy!

• 2 tablespoons soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or dry sherry
• 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
• 1 teaspoon sugar
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
• 2 tablespoons peanut, sunflower or canola oil
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
• 1 head Chinese cabbage, trimmed and sliced



1. Soak the mushrooms in room-temperature water to cover for at least 4 hours. Drain, reserving the soaking water, and slice.
