Recipes Using Bok Choy

Eggroll In a Bowl

Not sure what to do with that cabbage? Eggroll in a Bowl is a quick and flexible weeknight option, and when I say flexible, I mean FLEXIBLE! You can make this paleo, gluten free, vegetarian…. So grab your cabbage, carrots, and protein of your choosing, and the rest is up to you and your imagination. It’s also a healthy (and dare I say tastier) alternative to the deep fried crunchy version from your favorite takeout joint, so pull up some ingredients and make it your own!

Vietnamese Caramelized Pork Bowls

Perfect for a quick weeknight meal! This one was shared by a fellow Springdellian and quite yummy! The great news is that the pork itself can be cooked, set aside, and you can pretty much stir fry any on-hand veggies you like right into the same pan before serving.

Slow Cooker Char Siu Lamb with Aromatic Steamed Bok Choy

If you’re looking to try some lamb, you may like this one! Char Siu has a very accessible flavor, a subtle sweetness against the ginger and five spice, a bit of saltiness from the soy sauce. Serve on this bed of aromatic steamed bok choy (or with another green or sliced tart apple if bok toy is not available) and jasmine rice for a complete meal. Micro basil makes a great garnish!
