Week 19 One Straw Farm CSA was huge! This week’s haul was purple cabbage, purple kale (even the veggies have purple fever in Baltimore!), Nevada lettuce, kohlrabi, broccoli, sweet potatoes, radishes, potatoes, delicata squash (remember: you can eat the rind!), and bok choy. If you guessed that this week’s recipe will feature the latter ingredient, you would be correct. Sometimes called the “soup spoon” due to the shape of its leaves, bok choy is packed with vitamins A and C—1 cup of cooked bok choy provides more than 100% of the recommended dietary allowance of A, and more than 60% the RDA of C; it’s one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Added bonus: it’s totally delicious!
Sauteed Bok Choy and Broccoli
Ready in 25 minutes (including prep); serves 6
1 pound broccoli
- Cut white stalks from bok choy; slice into 1-inch pieces. Coarsely chop green leaves.
- Peel broccoli stalks until the woody outer layer is removed; slice 1/4 inch thick. Cut florets into bite-size pieces.
- In a large skillet, boil 1/2 cup water. Add bok choy stalks and broccoli; cover. Simmer over medium-low until broccoli is bright green, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover; cook on high until water evaporates, 2 to 4 minutes.

- Press ginger in a sieve over skillet to release juices. Stir in soy sauce.
