Sesame Bok Choy
Bok choy is actually a form of Chinese cabbage. The whites of the vegetable are similar in texture (but not taste) to celery with its crispy crunch, while the greens resemble most other dark leafy greens on the farm. Think: kale, chard, collards, spinach. And like these, the greens of bok choy serve as the nutritional storehouse for antioxidant vitamins like A, C and lutein.
A quick, easy and most delectable way to enjoy bok choy is rough chopped and sauteed in a combination of canola and sesame oils. Add to that soy sauce (while still hot in the pan) and toasted sesame seeds (once it's plated), and you'll have yourself a perfect side to most any main dish.
