Oh dang about.com – couldn’t have said it better myself. So – I won’t. Heres some information about bok choy from about.com:

Sign up for a course in Chinese Cooking and at some point you’re likely to find yourself happily shredding leaves and chopping up the stalks of a bok choy plant. Cultivated in China since ancient times, bok choy is found in soups and stir-fries, appetizers and main dishes. Bok choy’s popularity comes from its light, sweet flavor, crisp texture and nutritional value. Not only is bok choy high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and calcium, but it is low in calories.

Bok choy – the “white cabbage”

Bok choy, or brassica chinensis to use its scientific name, is classified as a cabbage. Nonetheless, bok choy bears little resemblance to the round European cabbages found in western supermarkets, or to Napa Cabbage for that matter. Its white stalks resemble celery without the stringiness, while the dark green, crinkly leaves of the most common variety is similar to Romaine lettuce. The Chinese commonly refer to bok choy as pak choi or “white vegetable.” Another common name is white cabbage.
