My Nutritious Bites - BOK CHOY

Bok Choy is a versatile vegetable, a great source of Vitamin A and C and Vitamin K (NOTE: if you are taking Warfarin, you need to be mindful about eating foods high in Vitamin K as it will effectively reverse the effect of the Warfarin)

Bok Choy is great chopped up and added to a stir fry and provides lots of color and fibre. You can eat it as a side dish to accompany meat, chicken or fish or tofu.

1, Garlic Bok Choy

Heat some Olive oil in a large frying pan or a wok over a medium heat,add garlic and cook the garlic in the oil, add the chopped bok choy and cook until the stalks become translucent, it takes between 5 and 10 minutes. Serve

2. Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce

Boil some bok choy in a large pot of water, add some salt to taste, once the Bok Choy starts to become a brighter green, cook until it is to your liking ie: not too limp and overcooked. Remove from heat. The best Bok Choy still has some crispness about it

Heat some Olive oil in a frypan, add a splash of oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 2 tablespoons of water and some black pepper to make a sauce. Stir this mix until it bubbles then remove from heat and pour onto Bok Choy. This is delicious.

Oyster Sauce or Garlic are both great additions to Bok Choy and make an easy side dish, or just eat the flavoured Bok Choy with rice. Delicious
