Sautéed Bok Choy

Bok choy is the perfect vegetable for a quick, healthy side dish. Garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes add delicious flavour to this cabbage relative.

  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger 
  • 1/4 tesp red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 lbs bok choy (about 2 medium bunches)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp olive oil
  • salt as desired

  1. Prepare the bok choy by slicing it into 1-inch pieces, cut diagonally across the stem.
  2. In a large frying pan with a tight fitting lid, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the garlic, ginger, and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant but not brown, about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the bok choy and fold it into the garlic-ginger mixture until coated, about 1 minute. Add the soy sauce and water, cover, and cook about 1 minute. 
  4. Uncover and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the greens are just wilted, stalks are just tender, and most of the water has evaporated (about 2 minutes).
  5. Remove from heat. Stir in the sesame oil and season with salt if desired.
