Grilled Baby Bok Choy

I love my CSA! I love my CSA! I love my CSA!

I’ve already clicked my black, white and hot pink peep toes (as I don’t own ruby slippers) three times and found myself back home in Alaska. There really is no place like home. And, the house we bought two months ago is feeling more like home every day.

Over the last several weeks, the snow has melted from the deck and the yard, and I’ve learned just how much grass grows in a year (the house was vacant last summer). Daylight is increasing … I forgot how much I loved sun all day long–when it’s sunny. I can’t wait to start a little garden out back, after our landscaping is done, and start growing some veggies of my own.

I really do love my CSA. I haven’t bought much in the way of produce since starting to get the boxes every other week, except for the occasional filler ingredients, and the blessedly NOT local mangos for my beloved mango salsa.

Last box, these cute little guys appeared. It took me quite a bit of searching to figure out what they were. Baby Bok Choy. I’ve had grown up bok choy before in an Asian Slaw Salad… but had never tried the mini-me versions.

As we were also grilling steaks (by we, I mean K, as I am not entirely comfortable with the grill), I got out our lovely new grilling pan.

We chopped these Babies in half, sliced two cloves of garlic and tossed with olive oil and a dash of sea salt.

After grilling for about 5-10 minutes, we served, drizzling with rice wine vinegar. YUM!

I love my CSA.
