Chinese broccoli is sometimes called Kailaan or Chinese kale. It is a popular Chinese green vegetable, grown for its stalks and leaves.
It has a deep green color that brightens with steaming and a delightful ‘Chinese Take-Away’ flavor.
Steam first then stir-fry stalks, leaves and buds with garlic, a little sugar and some Soy sauce.
Can be cooked like choy sum.
Quick steaming or 30 seconds in the microwave before cooking helps tenderize stems and leaves.
