Chinese Broccoli is a nutritious green leafy vegetable. It has a similar but stronger flavour than broccoli. Add it to Asian dishes or have it steamed as a nutritious side. As an alternative to a broccoli side dish, try steaming whole heads until bright green and just tender. Arrange on a serving plate and drizzle with oyster sauce.
Chinese Broccoli is an excellent source of vitamins A and C. A very good source of folacin and vitamin E, and a useful source of riboflavin. It is best steamed, blanched or added to a stir fry.
What to look for
Sold in bunches or loose. Look for bright, fresh looking leaves and flowers, without wilting.
