There are so many things to love about this vegetable, also called Chinese kale, Chinese broccoli, and gai4 lan2. The leaves, stems and buds are all so perfectly proportioned that they cook up perfectly at exactly the same moment. You can just trim the very bottoms and throw the whole plant into the pot. Then you can take your time deciding how to cut it up. This time, I just ate a few spears, or stems, or whatever the units of mustard cabbage are, with my fingers.
For Sweetnicks, good for all forms of recovery.
