New line of organic Asian vegetables to be unveiled

On July 10-11, Lakeside Organic Gardens will debut its new organic Asian vegetables at the annual Organic Produce Summit event in Monterey, California. The line includes seven unique offerings for a range of consumers–from food enthusiasts to everyday cooks–and can be used in stir-fries, soups, salads, slaws, and more.

Red Napa Cabbage and Baby Pac Choi

  • Red Napa Cabbage: Slightly sweeter than its green counterpart, this versatile vegetable shines in dishes like Red Napa Kimchi, Sweet and Spicy Red Napa Tacos, and Crispy Red Napa Slaw. Or try it in a Red Napa Cabbage and Apple Coleslaw.
  • Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli): With tender stems and leaves, Gai Lan's slightly earthy flavor makes it a staple in Asian cooking. Available year-round, it's perfect for recipes like Gai Lan with Garlic Oyster Sauce, Stir-Fried Gai Lan and Beef, and Steamed Gai Lan with Sesame Dressing or even, Gai Lan and Cheese Quesadillas.
  • Korean Radish: This vegetable has a crisp texture and mildly peppery, sweet flavor and is used for pickling, soups, and salads. Try it in Spicy Korean Radish Salad (Mu Saengchae), Korean Radish Soup (Muguk), Quick Pickled Korean Radish or Korean Radish and Tuna Salad.
  • Baby Pac Choi: Baby Pac Choi has a mildly mustard-like flavor with crisp stalks and tender leaves and can be used in hot and cold dishes. Enhance meals with Baby Pac Choi and Mushroom Stir-Fry, Garlic Baby Pac Choi Soup, or Pac Choi Slaw with Ginger Dressing, or for a fusion dish, try Grilled Baby Pac Choi with Breadcrumbs, Lemon and Parmesan.
  • Choi Sum: Delicate yet flavorful, Choi Sum has a mild, slightly sweet taste. Its juicy, crunchy stalks and tender leaves make it a fit for stir-fries, steaming, or blanching. Inspire meal plans with Garlic Choi Sum Stir-Fry, Blanched Choi Sum with Soy Sauce, Choi Sum and Chicken Soup, or even Choi Sum and Chicken Pasta.

The line of Asian vegetables will debut at OPS 2024.

  • Mizuna: Often likened to arugula, Mizuna's delicate peppery flavor works in salads, stir-fries, and soups. Create dishes like Mizuna and Citrus Salad, Mizuna and Tofu Stir-Fry, or Mizuna Miso Soup, or for a fusion approach, try Mizuna Pesto Pasta.
  • Komatsuna: Resembling spinach, Komatsuna features tender leaves with a slight mustard-like flavor. Enjoy it raw, sautéed, or lightly steamed. Try it in Komatsuna and Sesame Salad, Sautéed Komatsuna with Garlic, Komatsuna and Chicken Stir-Fry, or a Komatsuna and Potato Gratin.

In stores nationwide, these items are fully tagged with UPCs and packaged, ensuring they are shelf-ready and meet high standards of freshness and food safety. To purchase, call 831-761-8797.
