Miso bok choy!

Miso bok choy

Bok choy the white chinese cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable and is rich in Vitamin C and K. It also has high fiber which is very beneficial for digestive health and is helpful in reducing the risk of chronic diseases. The miso adds probiotics to the dish, which help boost the healthful microbiome in our guts.

In this dish I have used miso to give it a salty and sweet umami flavour. In addition to this intensely savory taste it has a tangy flavour due to the lemon juice and vinegar. And the ginger gives this dish a spicy kick! It can be eaten with ginger brown rice on it’s own or as a side dish.
