Baby Bok Choy is showing up all over I see in farmers markets locally. I have to admit I have not seen it anywhere but in my local grocery store and in China Town in NYC in one of the out-door markets there. I say that because , I have only been to one farmer’s market this summer and there was no produce. I have seen pictures of other farmer’s markets and it seems to be in abundance. It’s one of my favorite things to cook with. Tasty and easy to use.
Bok Choy is full of vitamin C, B vitamins and vitamin K. Which means if you have blood clotting issues this might be a veggie you want to check with your doctor first with. Believe it or not this leafy green also contains calcium, iron and magnesium. So a great choice for those trying to get more nutrition in. It’s funny how many veggies have calcium , which is great for those who are unable to do dairy.
The following recipe only contains five, yes only five, ingredients. So it’s good on the budget too. While it does call for the oven to be used and during the summer this can be a downer if you don’t have A/C in your kitchen (like me) you could grill the chicken and the Bok Choy as well.
