Organic Baby Bok Choy
Baby Bok choy is a cruciferous vegetable, sometimes called Chinese white cabbage. I try to find an organic bok choy that is crisp and fresh looking. Bok choy has wide-stemmed, white stalks with full green leaves. The stalks are crunchy and mild in flavor, while the leaves are tender with a mild cabbage taste.

Baby Bok choy is available year-round.

Selection & Storage
Choose bok choy with firm, white stalks and crisp, dark green leaves. If you see any yellow or wilted leaves, don't buy it.

Size varies with the age of the bok choy plant. Use the more slender stalks in stir-fries or serve raw. Slice the thicker stalks and add to soups.

Refrigerate, unwashed, in a perforated plastic bag for up to 3 days.

Full grown or baby bok choy is best sautéed. Bok choy's flavor is enhanced with heat. It cooks quickly to the crisp-tender stage. Just remember NOT to overcook bok choy for the best flavor.

Thai Sticky Rice
"Sweet Rice"

This is NOT Jasmine Rice... Thai Sticky Rice has a taste that is different from any other rice I've ever eaten and is simple to cook.

In Thailand, this rice is prepared and eaten with your hands. Dipped in spicy sauce dishes it is sooooooo goooood!

Desserts are fabulous when coconut milk is added to the Thai Sticky Rice.

Thai Sticky Rice is a "Chez Bettay Vegan Pantry Must Have".

The BIG SQUEEZE: the TofuXpress
Marie Kraft developed an inventive kitchen gadget she named, the TofuXpress for those of us that want dense pressed tofu for vegan recipes. The TofuXpress eliminates the need for soggy cloth or paper towels and towering weights via pots, pans and canned items. This clever gadget simply makes vegan tofu prep easier, faster and saves space.

Packaged firm tofu may be purchased, but once you have pressed your first square of fresh tofu, you will taste and feel the difference in any recipe. Smoother and creamery are my first thoughts about the texture of tofu pressed in the TofuXpress. It made my Mocking Egg Salad recipe even better! Depending on the type of fresh organic used, note the time and type of tofu used so that you can duplicate the texture variations. Soft or regular tofu vs firm tofu will give you different pressed versions. These experiments will be very entertaining... especially for children to observe.

HINT: If you have a large family, you may want to consider purchasing two units so that you can press two packages of tofu at the same time.

Sauté until all the Tamari fluid is gone.
