It has a stronger taste than broccoli. A fairly good substitute is kale or bok choy. You can substitute regular broccoli but it won't have as strong a flavor.

Thanks. I don't know why the answers posted didn't show up in my emails. I think I will try bok choy. I found a recipe on this site that called for chinese broccoli.

Actually the recipe is called "Chinese Broccoli". I thought I would try it. It sounds interesting.

You can sub any of the leafy greens like kale or turnip, or, you can just use regular broccoli, depending on the dish. It's more like the greens, though.

Thank you Keni for your help. I think I will try bok choy. I have never eaten kale but I do like turnips.
