    The recipe calls for Napa cabbage but the method makes reference to zucchini. Does that mean they can be used interchangeably?

    The directions say zucchini, the recipe says cabbage.

    Check the recipe/instructions – first direction says >>Shred the zucchini using a grater<< assuming you mean carrots since there's no zucchini listed and thinking that wouldn't be so great in this – as much because of texture as because of taste

    Shread the zucchini? Don’t you mean cabbage.

    This sounds delicious; however, zucchini is not listed as one of the ingredients. Is the first step in the directions added by accident or is zucchini one of the ingredients. If so, how much?
