What’s Chinese olive vegetable (橄榄菜)

Chinese olive vegetable (橄榄菜) is a a specialty of Teochew (or chao zhou, 潮州) cuisine, a branch of Chinese cuisine. The name is quite misunderstanding. It is not pickled olive fruit but cooked mustard with olive fruit, soy sauce and oil. Though not fermented, the long cooking time gives the oil vegetable a very distinctive, strong savory flavor.

The background story about Chinese olive vegetable says that one lady found the young and immature Chinese White Olive (青橄榄) dropping to the ground. She picked them up and place in their pot cooking mustard green. Then this “olive vegetable “was created.

I have tried to use it in basic soups, topping for breads and fried rice. Last time when I visit a local Cantonese restaurant, I found this olive vegetable fried rice been brought up on their seasonal new meal. Unlike other fried rice with lots of ingredients for a multi layer flavor, this olive vegetable fried rice is really simple, it only includes eggs, bok choy and olive vegetable fried rice. But it is so delicious so I make this copycat at home when back to home.
