Baby bok choy from Gundermann Acres
Sometimes referred to as white cabbage, baby bok choy's delicate leaves and crunchy stems have been cultivated by the Chinese for more than 5,000 years. This quick-growing veggie is sweeter, more tender, and more compact than full-sized bok choy. Like all vegetables in the brassica family, baby bok choy is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and insoluble fiber.
Wash and store: Store baby bok choy in the crisper drawer of your fridge, unwashed and in a paper or plastic bag, until you are ready to eat it. Make sure to separate the leaves and the stems prior to washing under running water.
Prepare: Because insoluble fiber can be hard on the gut when eaten raw or on an empty stomach for those with GI issues, try sautéing, steaming, or roasting with a little bit of sesame oil, garlic, and soy sauce. But if you want a bite packed with fiber, raw, thinly sliced baby bok choy is a great way to change up your typical salad!
