This is a super simple recipe that my parents make multiple times a week.
Also, it's a really flexible dish! After you’ve cooked it, we can keep the bok choy in the soup and eat it as is. Or, often what we’ll do is scoop the bok choy out, drink the soup, and eat the bok choy separately.
Just like the words “cafe” and “chocolate”, bok choy is a loan word from Cantonese “baahk choi”, which literally means “white vegetable.”
Bok choy is one of the many different types of Chinese cabbage, cultivated for over 2000 years for its resistance to cold weather.
