Bok Choy and some Turnip Greens

Hey ever want to cook something awesome and delicious but just don’t know how?! Let’s start with Bok Coy first…it’s and Asian leafy green typically called Chinese cabbage it’s high in vitamins A and C, and is a nutritious low calorie snack alternative to cake or chips. I personally Never came in contact with any of this Choy until I picked it yesterday in the garden. What’s nice is that the internet is full of mouth watering recipes for any sort of food. So instead of asking your great grandma for her award winning Choy recipe you can just as easily ask Google.

Alright now turnip greens. So before you embarrass yourself at a southern lady’s house because you asked her to pass the spinach at the dinner table and everyone at the table is staring at you and bursts out laughing but you don’t get it because you’re a Yankee To avoid this, just assume that at almost every southern table turnip greens are going to replace our northern green.
Other than that I don’t have any advice so….sorry .
BUT I HAVE A RECIPE!

Like a lot of veggies you can and should eat the greens along with the vegetable. Because you’ll be missing out on a delicious nutritious bonus. Turnips are cool because you can treat them like potatoes! Roast them in the oven with oil, salt, pepper, parsley, garlic or just get creative…. And why not throw the turnips over the greens?!? Why not?!

Oh yes we also will be having our first garden stand tomorrow!! I’m excited and can’t wait to see the turn out 🙂
