Three Baby Bok Choy Recipes

I previously posted the recipe for marinated baby bok choy.  I have another version of marinated bok choy that is a little sweeter. It can be served on a bed of carrot noodles for a beautiful contrast of color and wonderful flavor. I like both of them equally. A lady in our raw living foods group gave me a more savory bok choy recipe that her toddler loves. I will post all three recipes here.

Sweet Bok Choy on Carrot Noodles

4 heads baby bok choy, cut in bite size pieces
3-4 carrots, peel into noodles w/ vegetable peeler
Juice of 2 oranges
5 soft dates, cut up
2 tsp cold pressed EVOO
2 T raw tahini
2 T raw honey
sea salt to taste
Blend the dressing in a small blender till creamy smooth. Add more or less OJ depending on the consistency. It should end up thin enough to pour over the bok choy. Mix well.  Serve the bok choy on a bed of carrot noodles.

Place bok choy into a bowl. Drizzle the bok choy with a mixture of the garlic, tamari and EVOO that has been well whisked. Stir to evenly coat the bok choy. Let marinate 2 hours.

Before staring my raw living foods lifestyle, I never had eaten bok choy raw . I really love it and routinely make all three of these recipes now. Give it a try, you just might be pleasantly surprised also. Peace and Eat More Raw!
