Many exciting developments are coming soon, including a Twitter Party that I'm hosting for Meatless Monday (details to follow) and an article that I'm writing for Whole Life Times, inspired by my blog post: My Glamorous Hollywood Career... And Why I Gave It Up.
Today I wanted a share a simple, delicious, healthy summer recipe for Grilled Baby Bok Choy.
This is one of my favorite vegetables in the world. Bok Choy—also known as white cabbage or Chinese cabbage—comes from the same family as broccoli and brussels sprouts, and has many of the same health benefits.
For this recipe, I simply halve the bok choy (if the bok choy is bigger, you can quarter them), brush them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
Then I lightly grill them on each side. If you're grilling, this is a great easy vegetable to throw on. It can also be made indoors (as I did last night in my Le Crueset grill pans).
