Tatsoi Brassica narinosa is a plant that is widely used in Asia, which we are used to see in all world cuisines, from the cabbage family.
It has a pleasant, sweet and light mustard flavor. Due to its similar appearance, Tatsoi is often compared to spinach and shrinks significantly when cooked. But the taste is completely different. Its taste can be described as earthy and sweet.
It has spoon-shaped round leaves with a greasy texture and a slightly sweet taste.
Light, mustard leaves often appear in mixed salad greens.
Tatsoi is a versatile green, equally suitable to be served raw or lightly cooked. To make it easier, use tatsoi wherever you use spinach. Lightly steam or sauté, blend the leaves with a hot sauce, serve with tofu or use in soup.
You can wrap the leaves in a damp paper towel and store them in a cloth bag in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
