Buk choy literally means “white vegetable” in Cantonese. Buk choy is commonly steamed, stir fried or boiled in soup. When cooking buk choy, it is best to add the stems first as they take longer to cook. Slicing them diagonally helps to expose the inner surfaces which will soak up the sauces and flavours in the surrounding dish.
Bok choy is a cool weather vegetable which matures quickly with sufficient moisture. They require rich, cool, moist soil conditions.
