Tatsoi Recipes

Tatsoi is an asian green with spoon-shaped dark green leaves that can be eaten raw in salads or cooked in soups or pastas.  It has a distinctive flavor between bok choy and mustard greens and is mildly bitter.  It is high in calcium and has twice the vitamin content of bok choy according to many gardening websites.  Asian and Italian dishes go well with the flavor of this green. This is a member of the brassica family which includes broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collards, and kale.  Very healthy vegetable!

Here are a few ideas for recipes.

Chilled Wilted Tatsoi Salad with Sesame-Ginger Dressing

From Kalyn’s Kitchen Blog

This is a healthy blog that I follow for new ideas.  This salad is an easy way to blanch the vegetable and then stop the cooking in cold water.  The dressing is Kalyn’s homeade recipe.  This would be great to make and eat as a side dish for a few days.
