Stuffed Napa Cabbage

Use this cabbage like a wrap to roll up this simple recipe!

15 leaves of napa cabbage
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 bunch of radishes, diced
1 lb ground beef (replace with turkey, tofu or tempeh)
1 egg
1 tbsp of soy sauce
ginger, garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 F. Remove the Napa leaves and flatten out with a rolling pin. (This will make it easier to roll them up with the stuffing). Mix all other ingredients in a large bowl. Fill each leaf with a hearty spoonful of the stuffing and roll up starting from the stem end. Place with the seam side down snuggly in a 9 x 13 baking dish and pour a cup of water or broth into the pan.  Cover with tinfoil and bake for 35 minutes. Enjoy!
