Oh Baby! Sautéed Baby Bok Choy and Leek Scapes

Have you ever seen anything more beautiful …
My love for food goes beyond flavor.  I love those moments when I go to the market, talk to the farmers and see their faces light up when I tell them what I am going to make with their food.
I also love those moments when you are washing your fresh market finds and 
you see something so beautiful it takes your breath away.

If you look closely, you can see the baby sprout of a new leaf just about to shoot up towards the light.
It literally took my breath away!

Maybe it is this grey day that adds to the beauty of this beautiful …
Baby Bok Choy
or my love of food …

Sautéed Baby Bok Choy and Leek Scapes
Serves 1-2 people, as a side dish
15 minutes preparation time

1-2 small bunches Organic Baby Bok Choy
2 Organic Leek Scapes, chopped
1 Tbs coconut oil
2 pinches Fleur de sal, sea salt 
fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 pinches sesame seeds
Heat your wok to medium.
Add coconut oil.
Add chopped Leek Scapes and sauté for 2 minutes.
Wash and cut the ends off of the Baby Bok Choy, add it to the wok.
Sauté for 2-3 minutes, until it shrinks a little and turns brilliant dark green.
Using your tongs, place the Leek Scapes and Baby Bok Choy on the plates.
Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt and sesame seeds on each serving.
Add fresh ground black pepper.
Serve with Smoked Salmon or your other favorite fish.

The sautéed Baby Bok Choy has a buttery flavor.  It is crunchy with a mild green freshness that I compare to spinach but with a slightly sweeter taste.
I love just making a bowl of it for a mid day snack.
