Full Answer

Bok choy is a popular vegetable used in Chinese cuisine. Before using in a dish, such as in a stir-fry or soup, it is important to wash and separate the leaves from the stem or stalk because these parts require different cooking times. The stem takes longer to cook.

Although it is fine to eat baby or young bok choy raw in a salad, it is generally better to cook it slightly first.

Bok choy is rich in nutrients, such as vitamins A and C.
