Pak choi is a leafy green vegetable belonging to the Brassica rapa family. This popular Asian vegetable is recognized for its crisp, succulent stems and dark green, glossy leaves, with some varieties featuring pale green or white stems. Pak choi is highly esteemed in various Asian cuisines for its mild, slightly peppery flavor and tender texture.

Distinctively, pak choi forms a rosette-like head, with the crunchy white stems forming a bulbous base and the broad, smooth leaves forming an upright bunch. This vegetable comes in different sizes, from baby pak choi with smaller, tender leaves to larger varieties with thicker stems.

Pak choi is celebrated for its culinary versatility. Its mild flavor and tender texture make it a great addition to stir-fries, soups, salads, and various Asian-inspired dishes. Both the leaves and stems are edible and offer a delightful contrast in taste and texture when cooked. The leaves cook down quickly, while the stems retain a satisfying crunch, adding a pleasant freshness to cooked dishes.
