BokChoy

Baby bok choy is a smaller, younger version of bok choy. It is a brassicacae and is part of the mustard or cabbage family. Because it is smaller, it is more tender, and provides a milder flavor.

The list of nutritional benefits are plentiful. One cup of shredded raw baby bok choy has only nine calories and no saturated fats. These leafy vegetables contain omega-3 and moega-6 fatty acids, and are a rich source of vitamin A, C, K, and folate. Bok choy also provides several minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium.

Try your bok choy raw in a salad. Bok choy contains enzymes that produce cancer-fighting compounds. Cooked bok choy however, can improve the absorption of carotenoids, which are better absorbed when you cook the bok choy first and serve with a healthy fat.

Baby bok choy is enjoyable in stir-fries, with noodles and in soups. Try them braised, grilled, or even raw in a salad or slaw.
