To store unwashed tatsoi, place in a plastic bag; refrigerate in crisper drawer.
Small and sturdy, tatsoi is identified by its emerald spoon-shaped leaves. Its thick leaves offer a mild flavor with a faint metallic bitter edge. Some describe it tasting like a slightly mustardy Swiss chard. Its stalks are sweet and almost creamy. The texture is similar to mache, but much heartier. This green is popular in spring mix and mesclun mixtures.
Mix with lettuces and other greens
when young and tender; drizzle with dressing or vinaigrette. Add the last
minute to stir-fries. Do not overcook. Lightly sauté with favorite fresh
herbs and seasonings. Toss in soups for flavor and texture or use as a
garnish. Tatsoi makes an attractive bed for rice dishes. Make a delicious
pesto with its tender young leaves; serve with crackers or crusty bread
squares. Tatsoi may be eaten raw or cooked. Many prefer it cooked. To
store, place in a plastic bag; refrigerate in crisper drawer.
