Favorite vegetarian bok choy recipe that is not stir fry or curry? [More:]Help me with CSA time again.
I got a bunch of bok choy and I've already made a red curry and did the stir fry with garlic thing.
Anyone got any other veg recipes or ideas for how to use this?
I last used it chopped up in a soup with extra firm tofu chunks. I think I may have used a fish based powder broth and some Vietnamese "vermicelli" a friend gave me, but you could use any kind of broth base you want. I assuming you're a real vegetarian, so miso paste, lots of different pastes, cubes, broths and powders to chose from.

The super Korean thing to do would be to add some super Korean hot factor: paste, flakes, threads are big I guess, or to make this thick sauce with scallions, soy, pepper flakes, & sesame oil you just add some of. I'd probably go more pho and add some fresh herbs, a little hot sauce, a little sweetish sauce, but then I'd probably ditch the noodles unless they were great and just add other vegetables. Korean hot soups my mom makes also use a lot of those big turnips or giant radishes, but you could add anything. I think a dried mushroom broth soup would be nice, going the not hot route.

Basically, soup, with three or four angles in there somewhere.

Thanks! Those sound great.
I think I will try the apple bok choy salad.

I made the salad and even with a few substitutions for the dressing (pecans instead of cashews and reg milk instead of soy) it was great!

thanks again for the recipes. I am sure next week I will be trying the others.

I really like the "nutritarian" recipes. Thus far, everything I've made has been delicious.
