Tokyo Bekana

About Me: Tokyo Bekana is a non-heading Chinese cabbage from Japan. The spring-green leaves curl at the edges and mature with slim white stems that widen at the base. It is crisp and tender with a mild, sweet, spinach-like flavour with mild pepper tones. Tokyo Bekana is an excellent source of fibre that can help aid in digestion and contains vitamins A, C, and K. It also contains some magnesium, calcium, iron, and folate. It is suited for eating both raw and cooked such as sautéing, steaming, and stir-frying. The frilly green is mild and can be shredded and tossed into green salads, mixed into pasta dishes for added crispness, braised as a side dish, or sliced and added to soups.

To store: Tokyo Bekana should be stored in a mesh bag, or paper towel, and then placed inside a reused plastic bag, or container inside your fridge. Do not wash until ready for use. It will keep 1-2 weeks.
