Green Dragon Vegetables with Jin Hua Ham Recipe ( 青龙菜 )

green dragon vegetables jin hua ham silver fish
It was love at first bite with this Green Dragon Vegetable ( 青龙菜 ) aka Royale Chives ( 韭菜 ) when my students introduced me to this veggie some time ago. The Green Dragon Vegetable is commonly known as Chives and it is grown in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia. So what gives it this special taste and that extra crunch?

Apparently, the answer lies in the environment and method of cultivation. Although the vegetable is not certified organic, the green dragon crops are cultivated in a pesticide free environment to give it that unique sweetness.

Although Green Dragon Vegetable is commonly seen in Malaysia, it is rather hard to find in Singapore. To date, I have only eaten it in three restaurants. Thanks to PurelyFresh, who had made the extra effort in getting it for me after I had enquired from them, I got to cook this yummy veggie at home.

  27. This looks great. I've never thought about using chives whole like that before. I've only ever seen them finely chopped and used as a garnish.
