Week Three: Bok Choy
In your farm share this week:
Bok Choy is the vegetable of choice for the week (and our Farm and Kitchen Manager, Kyle’s favorite vegetable)! Bok choy is a Chinese cabbage. In Cantonese, Bok Choy literally means “white vegetable”. Our Kitchen Director, Joel Schraam, describes the taste as “cabbage and spinach mixed together”. Below is a way to use your bok choy this week. Check out below for some more recipes on how to use your vegetables this week!
