Buttered Pak Choi

This is a nice, easy to whip up veg side, something a bit different to boiled carrots! Pak choi has a unique flavour, a little bit nutty, a little bit sweet and it’s extremely versatile.  Time to give it a go if you’ve never tried it before!

Pak Choi takes no time to prepare, so it’s perfect to dish up as a side for a Sunday dinner, or for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I always love having a wide choice of sides on the dinner table for guests to pick at, to add more interest and variety to a table – you really can not have enough side dishes in my opinion!
