Shocked and excited to see a mound of huge Gai Lan in SF Chinatown recently. Gai Lan is a favorite vegetable, especially the sweet crunchy stalk. Had to buy some to experiment.
Peeled the fibrous outer layer, chopped and simply steamed. Topped with oil, s&p, sesame and oyster sauce. Quite delicious. Reminds of Kolrabi.
That was three weeks ago. On a recent shopping run, saw at least three venders offering. The quality has gotten even better.
A nice veggie to add to the rotation. Along with the no longer “new” Chinese Cauliflower. Has anyone tried the big Gai Lan, or even seen it for sale?
