Bok Choy

Bok choy is a leafy green vegetable, but it has a much higher stalk-to-leaf ratio than spinach or Swiss chard.  I’ve mostly seen it in Asian food.  It’s a great substitute for cabbage in chow mein, and I use it in stir-fry.  It’s a little steep in regular grocery stores, but the Asian markets have lower prices and more variety.  My favorite is a thinner, shorter type that has a green stalk instead of the usual white.
