A lot of people ask me, "Hey, blogagog, what does young bok choy look like in the garden if you forget to spray it with bug-killing chemicals?"
Well ask no more, people. Because here is the answer:
Lousy bugs. Anyway, bok choy (also called 'Pak Choi' by communists and hippies) is a great way to get your kids to eat cabbage products. We all know that they're good for you, but they taste horrible. So here's the solution. Heat up a tablespoon or two of oil until it's smoking hot in your skillet, and toss some bok choy in. If you've got a spare clove of garlic, toss that in too, but it's not necessary. Grind in some pepper.
1 minute later, pour in a few tablespoons of soy sauce, and you're almost done! Lastly, stir in whatever meat dish you've prepared. Stir it in in such a way that it would be difficult to remove the greens from the real food.
Trust me, it works. Hat tip to my wife for the idea of mixing greens into food. It's how she got me to eat them, so it only seems fair to do it to the kids :)
