Shoots are one of the first stages of a seedling’s growth; they consist of only a stem, thin roots and a few small leaves and possibly a flower bud. These Red Kaiware shoots range in color from bright purples to vibrant reds and mild pinks.
These shoots have a pungent flavor, reminiscent of strong spring radishes. Try adding a few handfuls of your Red Kaiware shoots to salads, of either the leafy green or the pasta variety; to add lots of texture and some unexpected flavors.
Red Kaiware shoots are also delicious on specialty sandwiches, their crisp texture creates an effect similar to the more traditional sprouts but their extraordinary flavor will definitely surprise your guests. Red Kaiware is also a delicious addition to all sorts of Asian dishes, use them as a garnish for meat dishes like short ribs, or add them to a stir fry at the last minute for some bright texture and color.
