Is Bok Choy The New Kale? 10 Bok Choy Recipes

Is Bok Choy The New Kale? 10 Bok Choy Recipes

Move over kale! It can be easy to get into a veggie rut. Maybe you buy the same two bags of spinach and kale each week, or are more of a peppers-and-onions-on-everything kind of person. Whatever your style, it can be nice to break up the routine every once in a while—and this month, we vote you do so with bok choy.

If you’re already cooking with it on the reg, scroll down for new recipes, but if you mostly know it as something mixed into your Chinese takeout, here’s the deal: Bok choy is in the cruciferous family of veggies, alongside kale, cauliflower, cabbage, and broccoli. As far as texture, it’s more of a mix of those last two—soft, buttery, and a little sweet when cooked. It's also packed with vitamins K and C, and a good amount of potassium and calcium.

You can find bok choy all year round, but since it’s best in the early spring, we thought we’d offer up some boy choy recipes to try while it’s at its peak.
