Shanghai Bok Choy/ Baby Bok Choy (2 in 1 Meals)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Bok choy is a member of the Chinese cabbage family and is sweet, crispy, juicy. Serve as a side dish or over steamed brown rice or soba noodles. The next day add broth to the leftover bok choy for a beautiful nutritious soup. Bok choy holds a lot of sand be sure to clean as directed here. Trim the bottoms of the bok choy to separate the stalks. Discard the bottoms. In a large bowl filled with cold water, gently wash the bok choy in several changes of water until thoroughly cleaned. Sand and grit will settle in the bottom of the bowl.

I love bok choy, and this was a nice change from my usual method of sauteeing with a bit of garlic and serving forth. I actually added tofu to this dish and served it as a main course over rice noodles. I did not make the soup as written since I am a vegetarian, but I added the leftovers to a simple miso soup for a warm filling lunch. Thanks for such a great idea!
