Eat what you grow

This is a recipe for Bok Choy, which is growing well in my garden at the moment. We usually use it in stir fries. By harvesting the outer leaves only, we can keep this useful vegetable growing for quite a long time. As we have been quite successful at keeping the caterpillars away we have a good supply, so the time has come for more uses to be found for the Bok Choy...Thanks to Stephanie Alexander I found a recipe that inspired the soup below.

I offer it in the spirit of making sure we can eat what we grow.

Bok Choy Soup

I litre or more of good quality home made chicken stock
About 12 Bok Choy leaves
Olive oil for frying
Soy Sauce
Udon Noodles
Any other green vegetables to hand -eg asparagus, broccolini

Heat the stock.
Whilst this is happening, stir fry the Bok Choy and other vegetables for a few minutes and sprinkle with soy sauce.

Add the vegetables to the hot stock and then add the Udon Noodles - I like to snip these a bit so that they are easier to eat.
