Flowering Baby Bok Choy & Broccoli Sprouts
*During my last trip to the farmer's market I noticed that baby bok choy raab had come back in season. I have always fancied eating edible flowers and edible tidbits during growth stages of plants. Flowering plants are divine. They offer delicately sweet petals that smell of sweet pollinated centers of spring flowers. I treated myself to a big bag of flowering raab and couldn't wait to get creative with usage.
My raab is bright yellow and sure to bust the blues. I feel sunshine inside just looking at it. In the picture above I placed my meal in a planter box to represent growth. It's raining outside or I would of placed it in the grass (for looks - don't worry, I kept things clean and ate it inside!). My raab is surrounded by a bed of fresh broccoli sprouts and resting on top of blended avocado.
It's got a pungent, broccoli-bitter tastes with a delightfully soft crunch to it!
