Bok choy


A member of the Chinese cabbage family, but it is smaller and has wider leaves, which along with the stalks are a pale green color. This bok choy is 10 inches or less in length and has six or seven leaves which have a large flowery look. Its taste is similar to spinach or Swiss chard and it can be eaten raw as single stalks or combined into other dishes such as stir-fries and soups. Also known as "Shanghai bok choy." Baby bok choy is available throughout the year. When selecting, look for firm stalks with crisp, fresh leaves. The cabbage should be used when fresh if possible because it does not store well. If it is necessary to store, keep it in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator, wrapped in plastic, and it should stay fresh for 2 to 3 days.
