Simple and Delicious Baby Bok Choy

If you haven’t tried this versatile vegetable it is worth a try.  It is a  miniature Chinese cabbage with tender stalks and bright green leaves. It has a sweet, clean flavour balanced by a hint of peppery, and a touch of mustardy bitterness.  I love using this vegetable as it cooks fast, can be used in a variety of dishes and available year-round.

This dish is keto-friendly and a great, rich side dish, thanks to the butter.
