Roasted Bok Choy over Rice with Citrus, Turnip & Pear
This Asian-inspired menu brings together a tempting combination of fall flavors. Bok choy, a close relative of turnip, has a subtle cabbage flavor but is more tender. Pears, of course, are a sweet and juicy autumn fruit. Between them on the flavor scale is hakurei, a sweet white turnip with a crunch similar to an apple but a taste more like a radish. Bringing all these items together is a bright lime dressing balanced with nutty toasted sesame oil. Served over rice, this warm salad is simultaneously exotic and familiar.
