Joining a CSA is definitely a challenge. Half our share are things I'd never think of buying. Not because they aren't good or I don't like them, but simply out of habit.
Take Bok Choy for example. I've never bought a head of Bok Choi. According to NutritionData.com, 1 head of this crunchy, fun vegetable has 751% of our daily Vitamin A, 630% of our daily Vitamin C, 478% Vitamin K, 139% Folate, 88% Calcium, even 37% Iron all for about 110 calories.
A 110 Calories… in this..
That's crazy talk!
What a great vegetable to use as a meal bulkier. It drives down calories and ups nutritional quality.
Yesterday I was inspired to make something with it for lunch. I used the leaves as a wrap and the stems as a crunchy tuna salad bulkier. I was shocked how quick, easy and light this dish turned out. It was filling, satisfying and fun!
Here's what I did.
- 6 stems of Bok Choy with leaves large enough to wrap
- 1 5oz can of Tuna packed in water drained well
- 1 Wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Garlic and Herb
- ½ tbsp Soy Sauce
- ½ tsp ground ginger
Pull out just 5 little ingredients.
Washed the Bok Choy and pull off 6 stems with large, good looking leaves.
Cut the stems just below the leafy part and dice.
Mix the diced stems, tuna, Laughing Cow, Soy Sauce, and ground ginger to make the tuna salad.
Take a scoop of the tuna salad and place in the center of a Bak Choi leaf. Roll.
