need help on name of vegetable
What is the English name of an Asian vegetalbe that is dark green and it is kind of slimy after it is cooked. The Cantonese calls it "san choi", san meaning slimy. Is it Malabar Spinach?
From your description, I think it may be called Amaranth in English. It's one of the few dark green leafy vegetables that is spinach like but can be slimy when cooked. I sometimes see it here at the farmer's market sold by Hmong farmers. Sometime they have reddish stems. My mother used to stir fry it with eggs.
