Chinese spinach leaves may be solid green in color, or green with crimson to highlights in the center. The flavor of this spinach variety is clean, with a succulent texture.
Because this variety of spinach is high in nitrates and oxalic acids, it is advised not to consume high amounts continually.
To cook, gently boil Chinese spinach leaves in water or steam; discard water which turns reddish in color. Ideal choice for salads, soups, stews and stir-fries. Sautéed greens are traditionally seasoned with spices and added to soups for enhancing flavor and adding texture. To store, keep refrigerated in a plastic bag. For optimum quality, use within one week.
Other names for Chinese spinach include hiyu, hon-toi-mo, yin choy, Bayam, een choy, Amaranth Red, Amaranth Green, Tampala spinach, Yin tsoi and hsien tsai.
