This week we are highlighting the magnificent Asian green, Bok Choy.
Check out this recipe from Everyday Food for Ginger-Sesame Bok Choy. It’s quick, delicious and uses some of the green onions from this weeks share. I quartered 2 smaller Groundswell bok choys (saved one from last week, they keep well in the fridge for a couple of weeks). This dish goes great over jasmine, basmati, or long grain rice.
If you are a meat eater, try pairing the recipe above with this Slow Cooker Pork Char Siu and a side of rice. This meal was a big hit at my house!
Not in the mood for bok choy this week?… Try preserving it kimchi style. Sub radishes for the turnips if desired. I like my kimchi on the hot side, so I use Korean chile powder that can be purchased at most asian stores in the area.
Are you a smoothie fanatic? Here’s a great smoothie recipe using bok choy!
Not in the mood for Asian?…You can chop off and dice the bottom stem and use in recipes as you would celery. I like to add it to chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad recipes for a little extra crunch. Or add to your green salads diced up. The leaves can also be cut up and eaten raw in salads mixed with other greens. YUM!
