Overview

What is Gai Choy?

  • Gai choy is a broad-leafed mustard cabbage with curved stems, a semi-enclosed head and a strong, pungent flavor. It is entirely edible. A different variety, called dai gai choy, needs the leafy part to be discarded while the stems are used for salting, pickling or drying.

How to Eat

  • Stems may be pickled using salt, white rice vinegar, sugar and chile peppers. Chop the entire cabbage and add to soups or stir-fry.

Health Benefits

  • Excellent source of vitamin C.

How to Choose

  • Choose heads with full, firm, broad leaves.
