Bok Choy

About: Bok Choy, also known as Chinese cabbage, is a member of the brassica family. Bok Choy is the Chinese variety of Chinese cabbage and has smooth, dark green leaf blades. It does not form a head as does the Pekinensis variety (also known as Napa Cabbage). Bok Choy is an amenable vegetable — it can be roasted, boiled, steamed, stir-fried, microwaved, deep fried or eaten raw! You can also freeze Bok Choy.
Nutrition Facts:

1 cup shredded Bok Choy contains 63% DV Vitamin A, 52% DV Vitamin C, and 7% DV Calcium. It is considered to be a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese.


Place unwashed Bok Choy in loosely closed plastic bag and refrigerate. Bok Choy is more perishable than cabbage.


The entire head can be eaten! Cut stalks along the diagonal and cut across the leaves.

Quick Fix:

Use Bok Choy as a substitute for cabbage. Shredded baby Bok Choy is a nice addition to salads.
