Bok Choy

I have been on an Asian kick lately! Bok Choy, this leafy Chinese staple is the perfect compliment to your favorite protein or perfect plain as a side vegetable. This low calorie cabbage can be steamed, stir fried or boiled. Packed with vitamins A and C and calcium, it aids recovery and maintains bone health.

I stir fry this with sesame oil, a few cloves of crushed garlic, low sodium soy-sauce and top with fresh ground Ginger (Ginger has been used as a natural remedy for many ailments for centuries. Now, science is catching up and researchers around the world are finding that Ginger works wonders in the treatment of everything from cancer to migraines).

I can't rave enough about it! I sometimes add chunks of sauteed chicken, strips of flank steak or shrimp! Familiarize yourself with this hearty vegetable, I am sure it will not disappoint! You can even add the greens to your chicken soup, I love it that way! Enjoy!

With ginger and garlic there, the only thing missing to my taste would be a bit of chilli. Looks absolutely fabolous. I will have to check out your other blogs when I have time.

Chili would be great in this dish!
