Baby Bok Choy with Yellow Bell Peppers
Baby Bok Choy with Yellow Bell Peppers

Baby Pak Choy stir-fried with sliced ​​yellow peppers, scallions and sesame oil.

There are certain routines in our family for which I am eternally grateful. One of them is that there is always some kind of green vegetable on the dining table.

I may not have liked vegetables as a kid, but as an adult I crave them. Were it not for the fact that the other members of my family also love their veggies, I could easily eat an entire serving bowl of just about every veg that regularly graces our table.

Wonderfully simple, with bok choy, peppers and scallions fresh from the farmer’s market, this skillet doesn’t even need extra salt, there’s enough natural in the bok choy itself.
