Brassica rapa var. perviridis

Komatsuna, or Japanese Spinach Mustard, is a nutritious and beautiful leaf vegetable. It has probably been cultivated in Japan for ages. With its long, bending leaves, komatsuna looks pretty, especially in its baby stage (don’t they all?). It’s hardy and grows fast. It has a nice texture and a gentle green, fresh flavour with a hint of mustard. Komatsuna is also a good source of calcium. You can do with komatsuna whatever takes your fancy. Use it like you would use kale or spinach. Mix a handful of raw baby leaves to salads. The largest leaves can be roughly chopped and wilted on a pan or steamed, added to soups and stews or tossed to pasta.
