All you need is Bok Choy and a few Asian staples such as soy and oyster sauces, sesame oil and seeds, and a few ingredients you more than likely already have in the pantry.

First of all if you’re wondering what Bok Choy is, it’s a vegetable that’s a type of Chinese Cabbage. It does grow in a round ball, it’s a stalk with large leaves on top.

It’s been cultivated in China since the 5th. Century AD. It’s pretty nutritious and keto friendly having only 2% carbs. It’s rich in vitamin A,C, and K. And it’s pretty darn good!

This is a great side dish with just about anything. But it goes perfect with any Asian dish like Salted Pepper Shrimp.

So grab some Bok Choy and let’s get cooking!
