Patchoi and Rice is a simple side dish or on its own as a great meat-free meal. Patchoi, also known as Pak Choi, Bok Choi, or Chinese White Cabbage, is a green leafy vegetable most often found in East Asian cuisine. When sautéed with local herbs and seasonings, it brings out the earthy green flavor of the leaves, and the white stalk has a slight crunch and light bitter flavor. This dish is most commonly paired with Rice in Trinidad and compliments Sada Roti or crackers for a delicious breakfast or snack.
