Green Tatsoi: good to know!
The Green Tatsoi is a baby-leaf which originates from South-East of Asia, widely used in Northern American cooking, though it is grown all over the world.
It is rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, potassium, calcium, and folic acid.
It can be eaten both raw, for example in salads, and cooked, as an ingredient in roulades, omelettes, lasagna, first dishes or soups. Green Tatsoi has a delicate and distinctive flavour, and yet it has 33 calories per 150 grams: it’s perfect for keeping your figure!
