MALABAR SPINACH (100g)

$20.00

MALABAR SPINACH (100g)

$20.00

While most salad greens shy away from the heat of summer, Malabar Spinach lets loose its full potential, sprouting glossy green leaves and contrasting red stems left and right. Its flavour is not exactly like that of English spinach but it comes close to it when it’s cooked, and better yet, its thicker, juicier leaves hold up better and don’t wilt quite so much. They are absolutely delicious sautéed with eggs or added to a curry. On the other hand, having them raw is a whole different story; the succulent leaves will have you thinking of citrus and peppers whilst you sink your teeth into that scrumptious sandwich.

TATSOI (300g)

$35.00

With leaves like the shape of a spoon, one can forgive the person who gave Tatsoi the alternate name of Spoon Mustard. This Asian green has discovered newfound popularity in Western cuisine recently with its mild nutty flavour popular in salads. If you’d rather cook these delicate greens, then do so lightly and they will give off a warm earthiness instead, similar to that of spinach.

RED AMARANTH

RED AMARANTH (300g)

$35.00

An exotic plant hailing from the West Indies, callaloo as it is known natively has an undeniable beauty to it. The textured green leaves laced with shades of red and purple bleed a vibrant rose hue into its immediate surroundings when cooked, a telltale sign of high antioxidative prowess. The taste of Red Amaranth is slightly astringent when had in its natural state (only use the smallest leaves for salads!), but when cooked loosely resembles that of spinach. This nutrition powerhouse of a vegetable is popular in stir-fries, stews and soups alike, and is no stranger to an Indian curry.

WATER SPINACH (300g)

Venture into any restaurant in Thailand and you would be hard pressed not to find morning glory, or water spinach, on the menu.   A favourite of the Southeast Asian people, this vegetable is enjoyed for both its long, flat, arrowhead-shaped leaves and also its thin, hollow shoots.  Similar in taste to Western spinach but with hints of nuttiness.  With this Chinese spinach, either stick to the well-trodden path of a garlic chilli stir-fry or try something …
