The Instacart guide to yu choy
About yu choy
Make your stir-fries bright and sweet when you add tender yu choy to them. Similar to Chinese broccoli but with thinner stems and sweeter leaves, yu choy has a taste similar to spinach with spicy, peppery notes. When picked young, the leaves and stem have a very sweet flavor, and many chefs consider yu choy as one of the sweetest-tasting Chinese leafy greens available.
Yu choy is best used in stir-fried dishes, steamed as you would spinach, or sauteed with garlic, chilies, and sesame oil for a zesty Asian side dish. In China, yu choy is eaten nearly every day and often served blanched with oyster sauce alongside dim sum. As Asian fusion cuisine gains popularity in the United States, more and more chefs integrate yu choy into their dishes. One popular way for chefs to prepare yu choy is to lightly roast the greens, then blend them with garlic and sesame oil to make a type of pesto. The yu choy pesto is then served with potatoes and Wagyu beef.
Yu choy is a green leafy vegetable with slender stalks and small yellow flowers, all of which are edible. The leaves have a similar appearance to bok choy and sometimes go by the name gai gui choy or choy sum. Yu choy is in the Brassicaceae family, which includes cabbage, broccoli, mustard, and kale. Yu choy has been cultivated in China for thousands of years. The leafy green was introduced into other parts of Asia and the rest of the world, and today is one of the most desirable leafy greens to use in Asian-style cuisine.
