 Stir Fry Green Mustard
Gai Choy or Jie Cai tastes quite bitter no wonder it is also called green mustard. Growing up in a tropical country with mosquitoes everywhere; my mom used to tell me if I eat this veggies I won't be bitten by mosquitoes because my blood would be bitter and mosquitoes won't like it.
I don't think it's true but it worked to get me to eat this.

I was very happy when I found the organic one at our local farmer market so I called mom and asked for the recipe.
