Nutrition student Jamie Reisinger shares this festive, antioxidant-rich recipe that’s ideal for serving at large holiday get-togethers.
Bok choy, also known as Chinese cabbage, is a cruciferous vegetable rich in antioxidants. Its dark green leaves contain much more beta-carotene and calcium than white cabbage. In addition to vitamins A and C, bok choy is a great source of phytonutrients known as glucosinolates – sulfur-containing compounds that may be involved in the destruction of cancer-causing chemicals. In Chinese medicine bok choy is considered a cooling food.
