Paleo Stir-Fry Shiitake Mushrooms Baby Bok Choy.
This is one of my favorite ways of enjoying vegetables.
The mushrooms are savory and add tons of umami punch to the dish.
The baby bok choy is crunchy and very refreshing. This vegetable also packs with tons of vitamins and is among the top 10 anti stress foods that are good for you!
I prefer cutting the vegetable in half, rinse under colder water, and pat dry before sauteing.
You can also slice the vegetable into 3-4 sections if the bok choy is not in mini baby size. Saute the steam parts of the vegetable first for a few seconds in a saute pan before adding the leafy part.
Here I share a quick and simple way to help you enjoy this delicious vegetable, Asian-inspired Paleo style.
