Dr. Weil, your epidermis is showing...

I think Dr. Weil is showing his age. I get his daily recipie, a word I have Never been able to spell, and they are 9/10 excellent. This on the other hand (sound of nose crinkling if nose could crinkle).

Green Cabbage and Mushrooms

6 Servings

1 small green cabbage, cored and diced, about 6 cups
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 pound mushrooms (shiitake or oyster, if possible)
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed into 1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon fresh dill weed, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Salt and black pepper to taste

1. In a covered pot over high heat, steam the cabbage in the stock for 5 minutes until it is just wilted and still bright green. Remove from heat and remove cover.

2. While the cabbage cooks, heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok, and sauté the onion and mushrooms until they brown. Add the cabbage and heat through, mixing well. Stir the cornstarch mixture well and add it to skillet. Bring mixture to boil, stirring, until liquid thickens. Reduce heat and season to taste with dill, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Currently reading "In Defense of Food," by Michael Pollen all thanks to lovely Brenticus over at Penguin. I would be stuck reading bad Battlestar Galactica fanfiction if it weren't for all the free books always. I need to call him...
