Vegetable recipes with herbs
December 07, 2009


Pak choiI'm growing pak choi (Brassica rapa chinensis), an oriental green, that someway is similar to Swiss Chards.


My few plants are really productive, and I'm harvesting many of these crunchy leaves, with the white and pink stem.
Pak choy can be stir-fried or added to soups.

Pak Choi and Bok Choi are similar in look and taste, and very easy to grow: just sow the seeds, wait, and harvest!
