Bok Choy Bundles

Bok Choy Bundles is a painting that is all about patterns (dare I say almost stripe patterns...).  Even though Bok Choy resembles celery, it is a member of the cabbage family and is sometimes known as 'white cabbage'.  This shapely vegetable is high in calcium, Vit  C & A, but low in sodium.  Grown in China since ancient times it has now become a cash crop grown in Alberta and California.  Perhaps it is beginning to find its way into more Western style cooking rather than being a low calorie secret of Chinese cuisine.

'Bundles' would make a nice grouping with my previous posting of green onions,called 'Bunches'.  Together or alone, these two low cal veggies can add flavour to your kitchen or meal...
