I really enjoy the taste and texture of Baby Bok Choy. This recipe takes the very best of the vegetable and adds a satisfying savory, spicy, with some subliminal sweet undertones.
Baby Bok Choy is a great source of Vitamins A, C, and K plus is extremely low in calories and only contains a tiny amount of fat. The texture and taste of the green leaves are similar to spinach and the stalks are similar to celery.
It is good raw but much better cooked. Baby Bok Choy is a staple in Chinese cuisine.
You can also try to grill the prepared Baby Bok Choy on the grill. It was raining today in Southern California so I opted for the oven! To cut calories and fat, eliminate the vegan feta.
This New York Times recipe popped into my inbox a few days ago and I was excited to give it a try. I went to pick up some dumpling wrappers at Whole Foods and unfortunately, they only had eggroll wrappers. Being a fan of Bob Ross, I subscribe to the saying that “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents!”
I followed the recipe for the “dumplings” but was not happy with the filling. It tasted bland and spicey. So, I decided to make some adjustments and the outcome was spectacular.
I’ve included a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to wrap the pockets. First, cut the squares into two triangles. Add a small amount of filling and fold over like shown in the pictures. Please use water and lightly coat the edges to make sure every side is sealed.
This does take a bit of time but makes enough to pop in the freezer for a quick, weeknight meal alongside a salad.
I used to cook with shiitake mushrooms a lot but have used more cremini and portobello varieties lately. The shiitake has a buttery, woodsy taste and definitely lends itself to this particular recipe.
If you don’t have arugula on hand, any other green would work including spinach, kale, or escarole. The key is to mix them into the noodles only long enough to wilt and not cook them.
This recipe is fairly easy to prepare but please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
