Chinese cabbage originates from, where else, the north of China. Characteristic of this type of cabbage is that it, same as pak choi, lacks the typical cabbage flavour. The vegetable consists of a light-coloured, oblong crop, which is as big as a firm head lettuce of leaf cabbage. Chinese cabbage is grown both outside and under glass and is therefore available throughout the year. This vegetable is very suitable for stir-frying and wok dishes. In the oriental kitchen the eaves are often used as edible ‘packaging’ of small dishes and snacks. Healthier than dough and at least as tasty.
