Every so often we get a veggie that confuses us all. Last week it was Flowering Hon Tsai Tai.
From google searching, members attempted to prepare this uncommon green but still had some issues. I decided to reach out to our farmer as I thought perhaps it was meant to be placed in a pretty vase and admired from afar! :)
Not so. Here is how Gerry, from Hepworth Farms, prepares it:
Cut up, flowers and all, into small pieces but do not include the hard stems at the bottom. Saute' in olive oil with tamarind sauce. Be sure to cook it enough until you can easily poke a fork in to. The flowers are a sweet addition to the dish.
