The Best Way to Cook Bok Choy

Bok Choy with Tomatoes
By: Isabel Smith, MS, RD, CDN

I don’t usually love bok choy, but lately I’ve been coming up with yummy recipes that include it – like this one! Although bok choy may not be so mainstream, it’s super easy to cook and makes for a delicious and nutritious side. I made this recipe using simple yet flavorful and nutrient-packed garlic, scallions and lemon, which made this dish all the more satisfying and loaded with key nutrients. You can add in other vegetables or mushrooms that you like for added flavor and texture too. If you’re preparing for a Reboot, this is a perfect dish to make!
