Okinawa Spinach – Long Leaf


Another species of the genus Gynura, Gynura crepioides, is an edible vegetable that is similar in appearance to spinach, hence its common name, Okinawan spinach.

Okinawa spinach is rich in vitamins A and C, protein, iron, potassium and calcium. It can be eaten raw or lightly cooked because it can develop a slimy texture if overcooked.

Young leaves are used raw in salads, spring rolls and as a garnish. Combining with other types of greens in salads is recommended as a way to cut the stronger piny flavour of the Okinawa spinach.

Larger leaves and stems are steamed, sautéed or used in stir fried and omelettes. Their crisp texture stands up well in tempuras, stews and soups. Complimentary flavours include fatty meats and fish, seafood, cheese, ginger, sesame and soy sauce. The rich purple colour of the leaves can act as a colouring agent for rice or pastas. Store Okinawa spinach loosely in a bag in the refrigerator for up to a week.
