What is Tat Soi (Tah Tsai)?
Tat soi is the perfect leafy green vegetable for Asian cuisine lovers wit spoon-shaped glossy green leaves. It is technically a non-heading Chinese mustard and part of the cabbage family. Expect Tat Soi to grow to about 20 cm high and 30 cm wide (it will grow taller in warm temperatures and broader in cool weather). If you haven't got much space, Tah Tsai is perfectly happy in a courtyard garden or a pot.
Culinary Uses for Tat Soi
This leafy green has a similar flavour to bok choi. It can be served raw, or lightly cooked. Try it in a pesto, as a salad garnish, in a stir fry, or in an Asian broth.
