I was reading Men’s Health (so much more informative than Women’s Health, for some odd reason) on the airplane, and an article suggested I try swapping broccoli for bok choy.
Bok Choy is rich in Vitamin C. Additionally, Bok Choy packs an anti-cancer punch due to its significant amounts of indoles, a nitrogen compound, and fiber. The wonder veggie is rich in folic acid, beta-carotene, and calcium.
Plus, Bok Choy reminds me of Chinese food! 🙂
Look at that pile of vegetables! What has come over me?!
I stir-fried the Bok Choy with fresh corn, peas, and a bit of low sodium soy sauce. On the side, I had a wonderful serving of bulgur, which just might be my new favorite grain. It was a healthy version of Chinese fried rice!
And on the side, a serving of warm naan bread, which I picked up at the grocery store in the deli section.
It was a delicious lunch that satisfied my desires for a home-cooked meal after 12 days of vacation eating.
My To Do list beckons me!
Out of the following ‘unusual’ veggies, which is your favorite and why?
- Bok Choy
Or is there another unique veggie out there that I simply must be introduced to?
Eggplant and mushroom tie.. I love eggplant because of how it tastes and mushrooms because of its texture. I thinkt hey go together perfectly 🙂
