Chinese Chive

 

Chinese chive is very popular vegetable in China. So far, I haven’t see it in American Supermarket.

Compare to regular vegetables, Chinese chive has a strong taste/smell, similar to onion and garlic, but different and lighter. It normally is used in fillings, sometimes in stir fry dishes, but not very often. One of the popular dish is stir fry with eggs.

Chinese chive is a perennial plant, when you harvest, all you need to do is cutting the part about ground, it will keep growing. You can harvest as many time as you like.
