Bok Choy and Ginger Stir-Fry

After sharing a Bok Choy 101 with you earlier in the week, I wanted to make sure you had some easy and delicious recipes to get started with, so I created a video sharing three super simple bok choy recipes and this Bok Choy Stirfry is one of them (I also share a Simple Bok Choy Soup + a Crunchy Bok Choy Salad).

This simple Bok Choy Stir Fry comes together in just 15 minutes and would make a great side dish for chicken, fish, or tofu.

IS BOK CHOY HEALTHY?

Allow me to start by saying all veggies are healthy, meaning they are super nutritious and have lots to offer our bodies, but specifically, bok choy is rich in Vitamins C, A, and K and is  packed with calcium, magnesium, and iron.

Bok Choy truly is a powerhouse ingredient (and it’s oh so delicious).
