Will's baby bok choy

Well even though my boyfriend is not vegan he does under stand that I am. It wasn't until talking to a lot of other vegans on blogs and in chat rooms that I really noticed that this was something rare. Funny, I just thought that respecting others beliefs was part of being in any health relationship but I guess that sometimes isn't the case. Any whoo.... Will made this for me one night while I was at work. It was so good for a hot summer night!


1-2 heads of baby bok choy
1 tablespoon of Umeboshi vinegar
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
pepper (optional)

Steam your bok choy lightly. It's really easy to over cook bok choy so you should stand by the steamer. It should only take one or two minutes. Always under cook it if you can because the water denseness of the plant keeps it cooking a little after you remove it from heat. The leafs should just be starting to wilt but it should still be crunchy. Take out of the steamer and set aside.

Mix the oil and the vinegar together and drizzle over the bok choy. Add pepper if you want.
