Bok choy is a Chinese cabbage and member of the cruciferous family of vegetables.

Rich in vitamin C and folate, bok choy also contains powerful phytonutrients called glucosinolates which help to reduce the risk of numerous forms of cancer. With its deep green leaves, bok choy has more beta-carotene than other cabbages.

Selecting and Storing Bok Choy

Look for stalks that are thick, fleshy and firm. The leaves should be crisp and green. Avoid bok choy with bruises or slimy spots. Place unwashed heads of bok choy in a loosely closed plastic bag and refrigerate for no more than a day or two. Bok choy is more perishable than traditional head cabbages.
