Last week I made some sauteed bok choy as a side for dinner. I wondered how else I could prepare bok choy when I came across 17 apart with directions for regrowing bok choy. I had just chopped the ends and thrown them away. Instead it turns out that you can easily regrow the ends into new baby bok choy.
That’s it. Just dump the ends into water and change the water every few days. I did notice that the bigger end grew new leaves much sooner than the other two ends, which I had chopped every closely to the stem end. I recommend that if you plan on grow bok choy, that you chop a little higher up so you get faster growth.
I haven’t grown anything in several years, so I’m delighted to find this simple way of growing a little kitchen sill garden.
