Okay, I will unveil it. Baby Bok Choy. Well, I guess the title gave it away already but this is the best stuff. So this is a plant and there is also regular bok choy available of course. This is a plant that is a mixture of a leafy green and then a stalk. Actually the name itself bok choy comes from being shaped kind of like a spoon. Like a stirring device. Its these nice round leaves with these long celery stalks that are light in color that make it this way.
All these things that I will be saying apply to regular bok choy. Totally works fine. Just as nutritious. The baby is a little bit more of a distinct plant. That’s my favorite. It’s the same thing but smaller. So back to bok choy and some cool stuff about it. It is a Cruciferous plant to start with. Cruciferous is a family of plants that have very high amounts of useful compounds. These compounds are primarily called indole. They have a lot of positive effects helping our bodies detoxification pathways.
