Baby bok choy is simply delicious. It can be eaten raw or in salads; it is a delicious addition to soups; and I love it lightly steamed with garlic and ginger. This veggie is inexpensive, quick and easy to cook. Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods usually carry bok choy. Most oriental markets also carry this vegetable. This week, add some bok choy to your diet.
Why Eat Bok Choy?
Cabbages are known to be cancer fighting foods. Bok Choy has anti-inflammatory and detoxification befits: antioxidant properties; offers cadiovascular and digestive support; and contains brassinin, a cancer fighter that is also present in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
Bok Choy is also known as Celery Mustard, Chinese Mustard, Onf Choy, Pak Choi, Spoon Cabbage, or Taisai.
It’s easy to make. Watch this video from ChefTips:
