Tasty Recipes for Bok Choy 

Bok Choy Cooking Tips

Bok Choy is an Asian green and has a sweet flavor and crisp texture that complements any meal. It is a very flexible cooking veggie, can be prepared by boiling, steaming or stir frying. Bok Choy is wonderful in stir-fries. The stems are succulent and absorb all the flavors of whatever you put them into.

Cooking Times for Bok Choy
• Boiling: 3 - 4 minutes for the stalks, 1 - 1 1/2 minutes for leaves.
• Steaming: about 6 minutes for the stalks, 2 - 3 minutes for leaves
• Stir-fry: about 5 minutes for stalks, 2 minutes for leaves - the leaves should be just wilted and bright green.

Bok Choy Salad Recipe

This recipe has won more praise than any other dish. I think it is because it is so different than the standard salad fair. It is definitely the sugar/candy ramen noodles and the dressing that makes this dish very unique. So do not mix the salad and ramen noodles with the dressing until ready to eat!
