Bok Choy me baby!

Don’t be passin’ by that bok choy and not putting any into your cart or basket.  Just 1 cup of this cabbage is going to nourish you with:

  • 53% of your daily value for Vitamin C
  • 11% of your daily value for Folate
  • 42% of your daily value for Vitamin A
  • 74 mg of Calcium
  • 1250 mcg of Beta-Carotene

Why wouldn’t you want to eat it?!  (Am I the only one that gets this excited about nutrients like this??)  And here is a very easy recipe to enjoy it in.

Halibut with Bok Choy – adapted from World’s Healthiest Foods

I had an onion and bell pepper on hand so I used those in this dish.  But you can use any of your favorite vegetables.  Mushrooms would be a nice addition as well.

  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 4 steaks of halibut
  • 5 cups of bok choy, cut into 1/2 inch slices (bite size pieces)
  1. Put a steamer basket into a pot and put enough water in just to cover the bottom, about 2 inches, and bring water to a boil.
  2. Place the onion, red bell pepper, and halibut (in that order), cover and steam for about 3 minutes.
  3. Then add the bok choy to the steamer basket and steam for another 3 minutes.
  4. Then place the halibut on top of the onion, pepper, bok choy mix. 
I served it with some quinoa.  I also just drizzled some Tamari sauce on top.   But here is a dressing that is super delicious
on it:
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon  Tamari
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Your body will thank you for it~
