8th December

Pak choi

Pak choi is part of the cabbage family but is closer to lettuce in taste than cabbage. It is a very good source of vitamins A and C, a good source of fibre and also supplies some calcium too (although you would have to eat a lot to use it to replace milk!).

Today’s recipe is another of mine and excellent for busy people. As a bonus it is also vegetarian and FODMAP friendly. If you are not on a FODMAP diet, you might like to add some spring onions too. Enjoy!
