Background

Pak choi is one of my favourite leafy vegetables which I absolutely enjoy. After a long day at work, this is the to-go vegetable dish that can be whipped up without a fuss. Shallots may be substituted with crispy fried minced garlic according to preference. For an extra whiff of aroma, drizzle a bit of sesame oil over the vegetables after adding some oyster sauce.

What is pak choi?

A type of Chinese leafy cabbage which is popular as it is or sometimes added to rice or noodles. Also known as Shanghai green cabbage, it is absolutely simple to prepare.

Oyster sauce vegan substitute

Oyster sauce is not vegan or vegetarian. For a vegetarian or vegan option, use mushroom sauce to replace oyster sauce. Mushroom sauce can be found at Asian grocers.

How to cook pak choi?

Simply stir fry, blanch or steam the vegetables. Season with some soy sauce or oyster sauce as per this recipe for taste.

Other vegetables

Vegetables like lettuce or 'choi sam' (Chinese flowering cabbage) may be used to substitute pak choi.
