Bok Choy

Bok Choy Recipes

Bok Choy is one of our favorites on Ambrose Farm. It produces long thick white juicy stalks that offer a sweet taste with just a slight tang. The large green leaves have a more subdued flavor. This vegetable's tender heart is very sweet and is called "choy sum".
Bok Choy is a good source of vitamin C, A, and calcium. One-half cup has only about 15 calories. It is high in fiber and the ideal roughage to aid digestion.
Bok Choy is excellent steamed, sautéed or boiled. This vegetable's good flavor can stand alone. To enhance the flavor, drizzle with butter or favorite seasonings and fresh herbs. Add raw to mixed green salads. Stems should be cooked separately as they require longer cooking. Bok Choy is a must for many of your favorite Oriental dishes.

Cooking Tips •Boiling 3 - 4 minutes for the stalks, 1 - 1 1/2 minutes for leaves. •Steaming about 6 minutes for the stalks, 2 - 3 minutes for leaves •Stir-fry about 5 minutes for stalks, 2 minutes for leaves - the leaves should be just wilted and bright green.
