Jambican Gardens: Shanghai Bok Choy

Our friends Colin and Kumiko grow beautiful veggies at their farm Jambican Studio Gardens in Manotick. These days, they are avoiding markets to keep their inter-generational household safe. So we are giving them a hand, selling their produce at our store on the weekends. We picked our favourite Asian greens and veggies to share with you!

The "Shanghai" variety of bok choy is light jade green and sweeter than the classic white and crinkly-leaf variety. The bulb traps whatever sauce or broth you add. Simply trim the ends, add to stir-fry or blanche for 30 secs. With so little prep, it's a super easy green to add to a meal, and one of our favourite greens to make at home! You may have had Shanghai bok choy in our Moo Shu lunches before!

Learn more about Jambican Studio Gardens via their website. Veggies are only available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays  for now.
