Baby Bok Choy and Avocado Deviled Eggs

| 6 Comments

deviled eggs platterWe’re going GREEN today! Not just avocado green, but Baby Bok Choy green too! Baby Bok Choy is a tender baby Asian chard-cabbage, and they are sooo cute! Those darling little crunchy stems and deep green leaves remind me of Farmer McGregor’s garden where Peter Rabbit ate so many delicious vegetables!

Baby Bok Choy by Jade Asian Greens  are fresh and ready to use.  Usually steamed, stir-fried, or sautéed as a side dish,  I decided to chop one up to use in my deviled eggs.  The spinach-like greens retain their fresh crunchiness longer than lettuce.  High in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and a source of fiber, Baby Bok Choy brings additional nutritional benefits to traditional deviled eggs.

Baby Bok Choy and Avocado Deviled Eggs Recipe

For the deviled egg filling I mashed up the hard-boiled yolks of 6 eggs, added 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, half of a large avocado, 1 teaspoon dijon mustard, 1/4 teaspoon salt, a dash of black pepper, and one head of  finely chopped Baby Bok Choy.  I reserved some of the thinly sliced green tops to garnish the dozen deviled egg halves.

deviled eggs platterWhat a pretty egg platter!  Perfect for a springtime party!   I separated the leaves of two more Baby Bok Choy heads,  and laid them in the center of the platter, topped with fresh avocado cubes, and drizzled with Miso Ginger Vinaigrette dressing that I bought in my grocery store.

Baby Bok Choy and Avocado Finger Salads

Those Baby Bok Choy leaves are firm enough to hold the avocados …Finger Salads!  Guests who can’t enjoy the eggs will love those little salads!  The dressing is slightly sweet and the ginger adds a zing!

I’m excited about raw Baby Bok Choy!  They’re small and tender, mild and crunchy – easier to use than the larger Bok Choy varieties for our family now that our children are grown and gone. Grown in California by Nishimori Family Farms,  I love the fact that we’re enjoying fresh local produce.

Do you ever eat Baby Bok Choy as a salad?  How to you prepare it for your family?

Disclosure:   I received a box of assorted Asian greens to try from Jade Asian Greens, a product of Nishimori Family Farms, distributed by San Miguel Produce, Inc. of Oxnard, California to try out.  All opinions and experiences are mine.  I was not required to write this post and was not compensated.  I’m grateful to sponsors who send products that I might not try so I can share them with my readers!

I’d love to visit Nishimori Family Farms someday.  Here’s a video about their farm:

  1. Mimi– Can you tell me when my dwarf fuerte avocado will blossom. I’ts getting all new leafs, but no blossoms. Thanks alot. Don Farrell

  2. I love BOTH of these ideas — the little finger salads (cute name!), and the baby bok in the avocado deviled eggs. Brilliance!

  3. Mimi, what a creative way to make deviled eggs! These would be wonderful on the Easter table, wouldn’t they?

    Also, your idea to use the baby bok choy leaves as a vehicle to hold the chopped avocado is very clever. It’s sort of a one-bite finger salad, eh?

    Thank you for coming up with such inspired ways to serve our leafy greens. We’ll be trying them both!
