I love this little nutritional powerhouse. For us BFC'ers: 1 C Raw/shredded = (s)/1 (c)/2...and about 52% of our Vit. C. You've probably ate it in stir frys, but it stands alone as a side dish...or raw in salads. My son puts some of this mild veggie in his green smoothies.
Check out http://nutritiondata.self.com to see some of it's other nutrients as well. Just put in Pak Choi-that's just another name for it...AKA: white cabbage.
My DIL lived in Malaysia as a girl and her family cooked it simply:
Thinly slice white stalks and saute in little oil & add grated fresh garlic/ginger. I use my microplane and it works really well. Once it softens add the shredded green leaves and quickly cook until slightly wilted. There are lots of recipes online as well.
