Vegetable of the Week. MIZUNA.


Elegant, deep green and saw-toothed leaves have a mild yet tangy flavor. This tender green leaf lettuce makes an excellent mix for salads, stir fries and soups.

Serving Ideas

Mizuna is generally mixed with other lettuces to enhance the appearance, flavor, and nutritional value of salad. The leaves can be added to soups at the end of cooking; the heat of the broth will cook them sufficiently.

yep! one of my favorite vegetables - so versatile! good raw, or cooked, flowers are yummy in salads, and if you cut it back - it'll just keep growing!
