View Full Version : Baby Bok Choy

I got some in my buyers group basket this week. I've sliced it up with dressing and just put some in the dehydrator with the Goddess Chip marinade...thinking it could be good~
I'm always looking for ways to add more greens and veggies.
Would love to hear some ideas on what YOU do with it?

I like it in my salad with olive oil, cayenne pepper and kelp granules. Found that works with any of the bitter greens like cabbage. Shredded carrots and tomatoes help too.

I got some last week, too. Bok choy is nice in a green smoothie. I also like to use it in an unstir-fry, salads and soups. The dressing or broth flavoring is the key.
Blend with any or all of the following:
1 cup coconut water
juice of 1 lime
1 T. sesame oil
1 clove garlic
1" ginger root
1 t. miso or nama shoyu or tamari
1 t. ume plume (or rice) vinegar
1 t. honey
red jalepeno (opt.)
I used it in a really good stew that I wrote about in this blog. It doesn't need to be as complicated as I made it, but you get the idea.
Happy uncooking! :)

I love it with any sort of creamy, spicy, or salty dip.
Bok choy (especially the baby type) is one of my favorite vegetables.

I LOOVE bok choy. It's one of my favorite foods that I've discovered since going raw. I think it's 'cos of all the water in it, it's just so refreshing to eat. Why would you ever want to cook it?! It's so delightfully crunchy and hydrating raw. Anyway, I just put it in salads or use it for dipping in, well, dips/spreads. Or, if I'm running out the door, I'll grab a few stalks and just munch on them straight. Love it!!

Thanks everyone for the great ideas!:)
The bok choy goddess chips were NOT a success...all that watery goodness in the stems turned pretty woody when dried....yeech!!!:eek:

I use bok choy in green juices sometimes. I don't recall a strong taste to the bok choy juice. There's a whole lotta juice in that stuff. Not sure if the baby greens would yield as much, though.
