Pak Choy is a member of the cabbage family and has a number of different names, including bok choy, spoon cabbage - and is often spelled pak choi. The texture of both leaves and stalks is crisp, and the flavour is somewhere between mild cabbage and spinach. If very young it can be eaten raw in salads, but is best when lightly cooked. Cut the stems into wide strips and the leaves into finer strips. Very young pak choi can be left whole, or halved or quartered. It's perfect for stir fries.
