This week's recipe of Sesame Stir Fried Chinese Greens was chosen by Joanne of Apple Crumbles. I must first admit that I had no idea what bok choy looked like. I was dilligently reading the veggie signs in Publix trying to locate said bok choy. As soon as I found, I immediately knew that I was not going to like it. Why you ask -- because it wasn't firm, but it wasn't soft either. Its a texture thing.
I thought the bok choy itself was very bland. I just realized that I forgot to put the sesame seeds on top of the bok choy. Maybe they would have added some flavor, but they would not have changed the unfortunate texture of the bok choy. I now know what the one veggie I always pick out of chinese food is!
On a positive note, I really liked the mixture of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil. The combination would be great on stir fry veggies. Thanks Joanne for the recipe pick this week. While bok choy is not my favorite veggie, I definitely like the stir fry sauce and will try it on other vegetables.
