What is Tat Soi?
This week’s box contains tat soi, which you may have had before without even realising!
Originating from Asia, Tat Soi is an extremelly versatile leafy green and can typically be used anywhere you’d normally use spinach! Lightly steamed, sauted or eaten raw – we love the stuff! Tat Soi is often ‘hidden’ in pre-packed salad bags, so chances are, you may have already eaten it!
Due to the slight ‘kick’ you’ll get from this Asian leaf, we’d highly recommend using your Tat Soi with the Hot Wax Chili’s that you’ll find in the box. Tat Soi also goes really well with ginger, so just like our image above, try making a ginger, garlic and chili sauce and serve over fish, chicken (or for the veggies amongst you) tofu!
Did you know that the best way to make Tat Soi last a little longer (as well as other leafy greens) is to wrap them in a damp bit of kitchen roll and store them in a plastic bag in the fridge! You should add at least another day to the lifeline of your greens!
In local news, Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park are getting everyone all geared up early for Halloween with their ‘Go Batty!‘ event next week. If you can’t wait for all things spooky, head over!
