    Add broth, onion, bell pepper and bok choy to wok; cook and stir 6 minutes. Add pea pods, pineapple and vermicelli. Cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add pork. Cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and pork is no longer pink in center.

  • Bok choy is a mild, versatile vegetable that resembles a bunch of wide-stalked celery with long, dark green leaves.
  • Whole wheat pasta has three times the fiber of regular pasta.
  • Use 1 cup sliced celery for the bok choy.
