I do like Chinese vegetables but do not seem to buy them often.

I don't know which ones I buy and they all taste similar. I believe they are healthy and easy to cook however I find the bunches are way too big for one person and always end up throwing half of it out.

Nevertheless I will buy some next week as the taste is slightly different to other vegetables.

I love Bok Choy. I buy it every week at the farmers market. Its great in stir fries or on its own.
I buy bok choy, pak sum and choy sum as they all are delicious in stir fries and make it taste truly, authentically Asian. I buy them when they are cheap and in season, or if I am looking for something different for dinner.
I use too.
Love them all, and now.....time to get some and enjoy the lovely fresh taste they have. No idea 'why' I don't eat as much as I use too.
I'm crazy....... they are really quite a healthy food.
I sometimes buy bok choy but not often. I like Chinese vegetables but rarely think to buy them.

I like them in stir fries and usually stick to pak choi, choi sum or napa cabbage so that I can buy them fresh close to home. I like all the green ones. Canned bamboo shoots always smell like urine to me. *gag*

I agree with you re the canned bean shoots and I think the same about canned baby corn.

Woohoo!!! So, it's not just me then . . *phew*

Steamed Bok Choy for me!
I love them in stir fry dishes and with so many Chinese families who grow them up here and sell at the markets, I know the ones I buy are super fresh!Also,buying from them,means I can just get whatever small amounts I wish to! The cabbage is my all-time favourite,and I even enjoy it with 'western' style meals!!
Green is what I am - what with you and Rice having growers nearby!

Ah Yes, Finy, so you may be....But then I am green too, when it comes to all the fabulous WINTER goodies which will not grow here at all, as it is simply too warm all year round!! I have such fond memories of picking apples, straight from the tree, or buying them from the nearby orchard, when growing up in Victoria!
Actually, the SUMMER stone fruits also will not grow here in the tropics, but we DO have the mangoes and my all-time favourite Lychees!!
So it is six of one, half a dozen of the other really......

I buy them quite often and cook them quite often. But there is no great difference for me to all the vegetables I grew up with here in Australia. In fact there are very FEW asian vegetables. I like them like I like all my vegetables, but here in Aus. we have a much wider variety.
I used to use bok choy often but not so much anymore. I still love the taste of bok choy, but we stopped making the few dishes that called for it.
I like most of them but dont cook it much, doesn't taste the same as the asians cook it. However, I WISH they wold cut it in bite sizes as hard to eat those long pieces with chop sticks!
I like your photo, jonaj!

I'll buy a bunch of 1 of bok choy sometimes, (& coriander) at the Asian grocer on top of 1 of the stations, on my way back from the city, when I'm calling into the fish shop, next door to it. It depends If I have to hurry for the next train, after the 1 I just got off, because after the train I have to catch a bus, & we only have 1 bus service an hour, so timing is everything! Sometimes I just can't be bothered exiting the train!
