- When shopping for bok choy, look for vibrant green leaves and a firm, crisp, white stalk.
- To prepare the vegetable for cooking, rinse it well and dry the leaves thoroughly. Baby bok choy can be left whole, but large bok choy should usually be chopped or sliced before sauteing or stir-frying.
- Store bok choy in a plastic bag, unwashed, in the vegetable crisper. Use within 48 hours.
