Awesome stir-fried sesame garlic bok choy

I am a bit obsessed with bok choy these days! Stir fried, steamed or boiled – Bak choy is such a versatile vegetable that can be used in any soup and main course. 

Hello family!

It is a green leafy vegetable that looks a bit like a Romaine lettuce on top and a large celery on the bottom, and it seems like as if it is a close relative of the cabbage family. 

A powerhouse of nutrients

“Containing a wealth of vitamins C, A, and K, and excellent sources of calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron, bok choy deserves its reputation as a powerhouse among vegetables. Vitamin A, for instance, is essential for a properly functioning immune system, while vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields the body from free radicals. Bok choy supplies potassium for healthy muscle and nerve function, and vitamin B6 for carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.” Foodfacts
