The Baking Cabinet Surprise: Spices
Cinnamon with bok choy? Broccoli with star anise? We were skeptical, too, but Lee convinced us that these warm, slightly spicy ingredients can transform greens, especially when you put them in Asian stir-fries and soups. In fact, Lee combines both cinnamon and star anise in a comforting beef-noodle soup with bok choy that's her go-to winter dish, and might just become yours, too. You can also just sauté greens with a few pods of star anise or a cinnamon stick.
