Bok Choy Fried Rice

bok-choy-fried-rice-2
Our bok choy fried rice is packed with flavor and sneaks in some extra greens.  Bok choy (also known as pak choy or chinese cabbage) is a leafy vegetable that is available all year round but is most abundant in the winter months.  In this recipe, we combine it with brown rice, spices and ginger to create a protein-packed fried rice dish.  Try this dish with any of our other vegetable or meat recipes.  Omit the eggs and chicken breast to make this a vegan-friendly recipe.   You can also consider adding tofu as a source of protein.

Tip: Use rice that has been kept in the fridge overnight or that has been prepared a few hours in advance.  Be sure to loosen the grains of rice before adding it to the wok/skillet.
