It’s been freezing in the garden on and off at night, but the baby bok choy doesn’t seem to notice. Baby bok choy has a much sweeter flavour than adult varieties. I fry it up quickly with fresh peppers and a tomato and then combine it with cooked pasta. I am not sure about the nationality of this one, Chinese bok choy, Hungarian peppers, extra virgin olive oil and Italian pasta. Hmmm. This just might be a typically Canadian thing eh? I serve it as a side dish with either meat or fish. I only had yellow peppers at home. Using both red and yellow peppers definitely elevates this dish.

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
