Cantonese Vegetable

Thai: ??????????? (pak gwang-dong)

Cantonese VegetableThis vegetable is easy to confuse with Chinese Broccoli. It’s not the same… This one has yellow flowers, long stalks and skinny leaves. The flavor is more bitter too. It’s very common in Southern China, hence the Thai name, “Cantonese Vegetable”. I actually don’t know the English name, so if anyone does, please let me know and I can change it. Perhaps its “Edible Rapeseed”? It’s name in Cantonese is “Yao Choy”.

Storage: Store your Cantonese veggie in a bag in the fridge. Make sure it’s not too wet or it’ll rot. Use it in a few days or it’ll turn yellow.
