A bite of green, a bite of spring

( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2020-03-12

Spring has arrived in Jiading district, and every street corner is filled with blooming flowers. Fresh and tasty leafy greens are also beginning to flood dinner tables

Below is a list of some must-try spring vegetables.

Shepherd's purse

The fragrance of Shepherd's purse is best brought out by wontons and tofu soup, making them the two most popular dishes in spring. The leafy green is rich in nutrition, with high protein content for a vegetable. It also has similar carotene content to carrots and more vitamin C than tomatoes. In addition, it is rich in calcium, iron, manganese potassium, and other inorganic salts.
