Tuesday MAY 8, 2018 and Certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor Andrea Catherine is here to share with us her recipe for cooking Bok Choy.
Farmer’s Market is live
I taught yoga in the morning, needed food, as I walked out and thought ah!
I told some farmers I’m gonna buy them out!
So excited! I had so much food that I bought at the grocery store it didn’t make sense to drive there.
I know that Raven Ridge Farms had some Baby Bok Choy!
One of my favorite things I describe it as a mixture between butter and celery
butter on your celery not what I mean
I love bok choy because it has this rich consitency
It’s good raw
I like it grilled
in the oven
My favorite way is to cook it braised and curried bok choy
adding curry spices
himalyaned pink salt
til they’re aromatic
toss those spices
one or two bunches of bok choy
Take those leaves and leave them whole
place the spiced choy in a warm skillet or do it on the grill
1-3 minutes on each side till their tender, grill is nice!
another way to enjoy spices
another way to enjoy those spices i mentioned before
you can use just salt and pepper
pick it up and eat the whole leaf
eating with your hands
can’t get in the garden to grow food it’s an excuse to eat with our hands
get that tactile sense
- eat it alone
- layer it in your eggs Benedict
- put it on your hamburger
- might bite down
I prefer to eat it alone
definitely one of my favorite vegetables
cool nutritional benefits
- bone growth
- Vitamin A
- beat off bacteria
- healthy vision
love this vegetable!
excited that it’s already here!
I think my mom always put bok choy on stir fry or Chinese food. Does it taste like cabbage?
Kind of tastes like cabbage but richer, has that buttery taste!
buttery on it’s own
- at the base
- at the bottom it’s thicker
cook it you get that quality you don’t get with kale or cabbage maybe with a Napa cabbage
- Chinese cabbage
- baby bok choy
- easier to work with
I wonder what it’s like to grow that?
You just get one head per seed that your growing
more like a cabbage in that way
It is so good!
Especially right now while people are fighting allergies
fighting off some of that bacteria right now
Great time of year to visit the farmer’s market and see how you can nourish yourself
could use it to make Chinese food meal
chop it and put it in a salad
I was gonna ask can you eat it raw?
Yeah! slice it real thin
put it in your salad
kind of like a cucumber texture!
I hope people will see it at the farmer’s market and support their Local famers.
I think as we go through pull up some recipes
Brooke suggested I contact you originally
keep up with
I’d be curious to hear how other people prepare Bok Choy or what they got at the farmer’s market!
If you’ve been enjoying hearing about food? I’ve been eating so much healthier. I hope if listeners are a market farmer they’ll share these tips with their customers!
That is an awesome time to come to Montana. You can still get into the park and there are not a lot of tourists around.
OK, there’s a little bit of prechat here that only got partially recorded I thought some people might like to hear… and then ….
