I like to stir fry it. Just put some oil or bacon grease in a wok, add some spice like garlic, onion, red pepper, ginger, etc and cook. Towards the end mix some starch in sherry or rice wine to thicken it and add some soy sauce.

I cook a lot of different types of bok choy. Never heard it called bok choy lettuce until now. I stir fry it in a wok usually add garlic, chicken stock, sesame oil, corn starch to thicken.

We use it as part of stir-fry as well. I cut the leaves from the white, fry the white along with other "hard" vegetables, and stir the leaves in just before serving.

It's not lettuce, but actually a verity Chinese cabbage, Either way I love it. We roast or steam it like brussel's sprouts and finish with balsamic glaze. Never met a cabbage I didn't like.

One of the best no carb wraps out there. For tacos, sloppy Joe's, etc.

Use in soups, stir fry or oven roast.

I use the tender green part mixed in with rice pilaf.

The harder white parts add crunch to salads.
