From: NOTES : Looking like. a small, leafy nosegay with pearly, lettuce-like branches spreading from a core,baby bok choy is a cabbage. Until recently it was known only to Chinese grocers and cooks, but its appeal has spread, and many supermarkets now carry the vegetable. It has two great advantages: It steams whole to beautifully decorate a party plate and in the microwave, it speeds to such a rapid crunchy doneness, you scarcely turn around and it's ready. It can be simply wilted and buttered, oiled, sauced with soy, or included in a stir-fry.
