Steamed Pak Choi

I've met up with my uncle in London twice in the past couple of years and each time we meet we eat in a fancy chinese restaurant and each time we've ordered a side of pak choi. I had never had pak choi before but loved it instantly. It's been playing on my mind recently and when I saw some in Tesco I had to buy some. Straight after that I had to research pak choi and felt very educated after reading this. Then found a recipe to follow here. I had 200g pak choi whereas the recipe is for 750g, but I didn't reduce the amount of the other ingredients and also used an electric steamer for 5 minutes. Tasty and nutritious! i really have to cook pak choi more often.


  1. I've never had Pak Choi but after viewing yours I'm tempted to try this next time hubby and me go out for chinese.


  2. i love bok choi and am sure i would love pak choi too! yours looks so good!

  3. Hey Maria, you should really try it next time you're out, it really is a fantastic veg.

    Hey Jaime, You will love pak choi cos it's just another name for bok choi... why there can't be one name is beyond me but hey, it's delicious.
