About the Recipe

I absolutely love pak choi as a staple to east-Asian dishes, and sometimes it deserves a spotlight feature. This dish does exactly that, and brings out the best of the green goodness of this wonder Chinese cabbage.

As part of the cruciferous family, pak choi is high in calcium, potassium, folate, Vits A, B3, B6, C, E and K as well as beta-carotene.


It also provides much needed fibre – essential for supporting gut health and digestive function.
