Pak choi


Also known as Chinese cabbage and bok-choy, this crunchy, mild and nutritious cabbage is one of the most popular vegetables in China and is grown in East Asia all year round.

Its white or pale green stalks and deep green leaves are high in vitamins K and C, and although the stalks can be eaten raw when the plant is very young, they are best blanched in boiling water, stir-fried or steamed to retain their delicate flavour and crunchy texture. Pak-choi goes well with rich, sticky sauces, as well as salads, soups and noodle dishes.
