Hon Tsai Tai with Caramelized Onions, Coriander, and Lemon Mayonnaise

.
hontsaitai  

when i was planning my vegetable garden, i searched for seeds unknown to me. it was then
that i stumbled upon hon tsai tai. it's a stalk, a leaf, and a flower: and it's all edible. oh, and it
is really tasty. similar to broccoli. maybe i harvested a tad late because the stalks were a little
bit woody and some garden bugs sampled a bit of the leaves, but i don't care. i grew it and i
ate it and i loved it.


sauteed in olive oil and tossed with some caramelized onions, toasted coriander, and just a few
dollops of some left over lemony mayonnaise from the other day. salt and pepper. yum.

that looks awesome! I love plants that you an eat straight through. those little delicate and crunchy flowers are my fave of these types of plants!

I also love the garnishes you've paired with them...Lemony may sounds rockin....
