If you’re new to the world of Thai cuisine, learn about five of the most common vegetables found in Thai dishes:

  • Bok Choy: Bok choy is a leafy, green vegetable with a mild, earthy flavor that works well in all kinds of Thai cuisine. It is usually steamed long enough to soften the leaves and is used to make a stir fry more hearty or build up the body of a tasty soup. Bok choy is not only delicious and easy to work into many Thai dishes, but it offers high nutritional value as well.
  • Eggplant: While we have come to know and love the eggplant here in America, it has been used in Thai dishes for many years. Often paired with a curry sauce, eggplant can be found grilled to perfection and seasoned with spices and fresh herbs at most Thai restaurants.
  • Thai dishesWater Chestnuts: Water chestnut is a textural component that adds a uniquely soft crunch to many Asian salads, soups, or even non-vegetarian dishes.
  • Edamame: You’ve likely heard of edamame before, as it is popular in many Asian cuisines. These young soybean seeds are usually steamed and eaten as a snack dressed lightly with salt or soy sauce.
  • Thai Chilies: Many people are drawn to Thai dishes because they beautifully meld together sweet and spicy flavors all in one bite. Thai chilies are to be given much of the credit for the spicy component that leaves so many diners wanting just a few bites more. They are used in all kinds of dishes and vary in spice levels but are most often found steamed or sautéed to mellow and refine the flavor of the pepper.
