While neatening the planting bed held by a retaining wall, I noticed that the Okinawa Spinach has started growing in length again. I guess it “knows” that it’s Fall now and it’s comfortable to run wild (again). Literally translated 紅鳳菜 actually means Red Phoenix Vegetable but it’s actually Purple so how can I miss out on Cee’s Super Fun Foto Challenge?
Hmm… I wonder if Popeye ever got to taste this variety of spinach. Simply stir-fried with sesame oil, garlic and ginger … it goes so well as a vegetable accompaniment with meat or rice main meal.
Oh! and excellent in quiche with bacon and cheese too.
