Kai Lan Also known as Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale. It has smooth, round stems sprouting large dark green leaves and small, white flowers. The juicy stems, trimmed of most of their leaves, are the piece of the plant which is most commonly eaten. Kai Lan has a similar flavor to Western broccoli, but without the characteristic large flower heads. Vietnamese Recipes - Kai Lan
