Very nice mix of flavours. I didn't have fresh ginger so I substituted about 1/2 tsp of ground instead. There were no leftovers which is always a good sign. I'm sure I'll make this again. Read More

something just wasn't right in this recipe. It just didn't have that special something and cinnamon was not it. I prefer the tabouli from the Sprouts or Henry's deli makes. this wasn't terrible but I wont make it again Read More

I cooked with bok choy for my first time using this recipe! I did not know if what I had was "baby" bok choy but I had 2 heads so I halved the entire recipe. Also had no capers they're a bit pricey for me to use. Regardless this recipe tasted great! I used it for a Meatless Monday dinner and fried up some veggie egg rolls to go with. Boyfriend and I finished our plates and I am definitely game to cook bok choy again! Did not find this too vinegary or slimy like other reviews state. I think fresh ginger really helped make this dish. If you don't cook with it a lot it's OK. At the grocery store just break off a piece in the size you'll need.. You don't have to buy the whole root that you see. I get a piece that is smaller than 1 inch costs me less than 50 cents and I can make a couple dishes with it usually!:) Read More

I have never had bok choy before but we are being more adventurous and trying new vegetables and new ways of preparing them...this was AWESOME....love the capers and vinegar tastes....i had to change my recipe due to some poor planning i used apple cider vinegar and lime juice also did not have fresh ginger so used powder....it took a little longer for my baby bok choy to cook as well but the wait was worth it Read More

My family and I loved this. Asking my husband to eat new veggies doesn't always work well. This he LOVED!!!! Already asking when we'll have it again. Thank you -thank you - thank you. It was easy fresh and very different. Most of the spices were on hand. I even used ground ginger instead of fresh and the taste was fantastic. Read More
