So. I picked up this leafy vegetable at the farmers market a few weeks back, brought it home, sauteed it and loved it. But I wasn’t quite sure what it was. Fast forward to last weekend at Shop Rite. I was gazing at the vegetables, taking in all the fresh greens, reds, yellows and oranges. And there it was. A 1/2 pound, two pack of baby bok choy. That was the vegetable!!!Of course I had to buy it.I didn’t want to saute it again, though I enjoyed it that way. But I wanted something a little different. Fortunately an idea practically dropped in my lap when Around the Table, an American Express publication, arrived in my mailbox.
The magazine had a small blurb entitled “Trend Alert: Foil Packets” and a picture of veggies in a foil packet. Okay, so they were referring to doing this on the grill, which I have a lot. But it was raining that day – hey it’s rained a lot here lately – so I decided to do a foil packet meal in the oven.
