Bac Ha are lightweight, green stems. The inner white to cream flesh is extremely porous and web-like, described as an almost hollow Styrofoam. Its sponge-like texture is Bac Ha’s most prominent attribute as the vegetable doesn’t boast a robust flavor. It is essential to thoroughly cook Bac Ha before consumption and it is recommended to peel the thin outer skin away before cooking. Bac Ha is a great ingredient for soups and stir fries as the vegetable becomes soft and tender when cooked, absorbing the flavors of the entire dish.
