What is Bok Choy?

Bok Choy is a type of Chinese cabbage with a flavor that’s similar to spinach and water chestnuts, though sweeter. Bok choy is delicious sautéed or added to stir fry dishes, such as this one. Try it in this Fish With Bok Choy recipe.

Snow Peas 101

Snow peas originate from South West Asia and are also referred to as Chinese pea pods. They get their name from the fact that they are able to survive the harsh winter frost and snow. Unlike snap peas, snow peas are flatter and contain less peas in their pods compared to snap peas. They also have a less sweet flavor than snap peas. 

Snow peas go particularly well in stir fry dishes. They’re also great in dishes like this Asian Shrimp and Rice Salad.

When To Use Soy Sauce

Did you know there are plenty of other applications to soy sauce other than stir fry dishes? Soy sauce’s unami flavor pairs very well with a variety of foods, from meat and seafood to chicken, vegetables, noodles, rice, and more. 

You can use soy sauce to add flavor to your meals while cooking, or as a condiment if you feel that your finished meal could use some extra flavor.
