Red Pak Choi: benefits, nutrition facts and how to cook

Red Pak Choi originates from Asia, and it is being consumed worldwide. The secret of its success lays in its gentle flavour that appears sweet, and its multiple beneficial effects. It is diuretic and detoxifying, rich in mineral salts, and it helps avoid anaemia and water retention. 

Red Pak Choi can help eliminate toxins that cause cellular ageing and contains fibres which restore intestinal flora. Furthermore, it contains Vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system, and it is the best ally for your figure: it contains just 19 calories per 100 grams!

Red Pak Choi burger


  • 4 veal hamburgers

  • 4 hamburger buns

  • 4 Cheddar cheese slices

  • 1 spoon mustard

  • Olive oil, salt, pepper q.s.

  • 1 Tropea Red Onion

  • Red Pak Choi q.s.

  • 60 grams of brown sugar

  • 100 grams of water


First, caramelise the Tropea Red Onion. Peel it and cut off the two ends. Secondly, cut it into slices, they must not be too thin, e pour into a pan with the brown sugar. Add water and mix.

Cook on medium heat and stir occasionally and, if necessary, add extra water or sugar. Check the temperature with a food thermometer. When the temperature is 180 C°, and the liquid evaporated, the onion is cooked. Now, put aside.

Cook hamburgers on a griddle and, meantime, cut the buns into two parts and heat them in an oven or a pan. Halfway through cooking time, add Cheddar cheese slices on the hamburgers and let them soften (do not let them melt).

When cooked, prepare the burger: first, add hamburgers, then onion and Red Pak Choi. If you want, you can add some mustard to complete. Serve the burgers hot, with French fries.
