5-mins stir-fry bok choy w/ mushroom
We love to stir-fry all kind of leavy greens. It's simple, fast and always delicious.
Bok choy, Chinese cabbage, and morning glory are our favorites. Similar to kale, bok choy is a powerhouse among vegetables and pairs perfectly with shiitake mushrooms and black rice.
In Thailand bok choy is strongly promoted by the Royal Project Foundation, a development project founded by His Late Majesty King Bhumibol in 1969.
When you visit Thailand, it's worth dropping by at a Royal Project shop (most airports have one with all sort of fresh produce, delicious coffee cookies and healthy mulberry and passion fruit drinks).
And an overnight at the RPF sites in the mountains of Mae Kampong, Fang or Doi Inthanon is an awesome Thai experience.
