Balsamic Vinegar and Ginger Bok Choy

My mother-in-law introduced me to my new favorite green leafy vegetable ~ bok choy. Bok choy is a Chinese cabbage that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene (for those of you that can’t stand carrots), and is a low calorie veggie. One of the perks of bok choy is that it takes on the flavor of any seasoning or sauce that you apply to it, yet still maintains it’s distinctive flair. Bok choy does not have to be cooked on the stove long, I usually just lightly steam or saute mine. It serves great with any carbs i.e. rice, potatoes etc.
