Pak Choi with Orange Ginger Dressing

Pak or Bok???


Pak choi and bok choy are two varieties of the same plant. It is a leafy green Chinese cabbage traditionally grown in Asian regions like the Philippines, China, and Vietnam.  Now it can be grown locally and organically.  Another superfood, it is loaded with vitamins, fibre and antioxidants!


Warm Pak Choi with Orange Ginger Dressing

This is a great side-dish to accompany chicken or fish.  The tangy orange and ginger flavours complements the very mild cabbage-taste of the pak choi.
