Although it’s considered a kind of Chinese cabbage, bok choy strikes us as something in between cabbage and lettuce. As you would expect, this leafy green is a rich source of some of the most important vitamins (A, B6, B9, C, K) and calcium. We’ve put together a list of bok choy recipes for you.
Using bok choy does not mean you should simply try to reproduce Asian cuisine recipes containing this leafy green. You should endeavor to integrate it into other dishes too, as we did; for example into a Middle Eastern cuisine-inspired tabbouleh salad. See what you end up with. But for now, find inspiration yourself in what we ended up with, in the following bok choy recipes.
