Recipe: Ham rolls with tatsoi

Appetizers with spices and herbs
October 07, 2009

Pak Choi & TatsoiI'm growing two new plants:
Tatsoi or bok-choi (Brassica narinosa)
Pak choi, Dwarf Canton White (Brassica rapa chinensis)

Seeded in September, they're similar, with dark green leaves and white stems.
In the picture: left a Pak Choi leaf, bigger and heart-shaped, right a Tatsoi leaf, round and with a longer stem.

Pak Choi and Bok Choi are ready to be harvested, and I used them both in this recipe.
