Gingered bok choy and carrot sauté

Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage, which you can find quite often now at your organic grocery store.

Like all the cruciferous family, it is full of anti cancer sulfur compounds, it  also contains large amounts of folic acid and vitamin C, and is rich in beta carotene, one of the main sources of vitamin A .

Bok choy is easier to digest than other cruciferous, it is more tender, and its taste is also milder.

Anyhow, in this recipe, you can replace it with any other leafy green vegetable that grows in your area, it will taste just as delicious!


1 tbsp of grated ginger

1 spring onion

3 carrots

6 large leaves of bok choy or 1 small bok choy

2 tbsp of umeboshi vinegar

1 handful of sunflower seeds
