Garlic-Ginger Bok Choy Sauté

I’ve always wanted to try bok choy so I finally decided to pick some up. I found a easy & healthy recipe by Robin Miller that looked perfected. It was quick and simple to make and tasted fantastic! I really loved the garlic, ginger, and soy combination. This bok choy paired perfectly with the salmon and rice I served for dinner.

Cut the baby bok choy in half lengthwise. Cut out the core in the bottom of the cabbage. Remove each stalk then cut them each in half lengthwise.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes then cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds; add the bok choy and soy sauce then stir until evenly coated then sauté for 3-4 minutes or until greens are wilted and the stalks are crisp-tender. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, if needed.

    I love bok choy – isn’t it delicious?
    Also, I need to get a big jar of soy sauce like you have… I go through it too quick!

    Yum. I wish I had planted that. I planted cabbage, but it is taking up SO much room in my garden. Yes, we have 7 avocado trees, but only three of them are Hass. Two are Fuerte and two are Bacon. Hass is by far the superior!! We let the animals have the rest!

    I adore bok choy, but unfortunately, my picky eater can’t stand it. I still make it from time to time.. he just gets to eat something else when I do :)

    I have been wanting to try it as well but have not. I even considered growing it but have not done that either. Maybe this post will inspire me :-)

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!

    I want to make this tonight but I could not find baby bok choy at our Fred Meyer. So I bought regular Bok Choy. Can I just give it a rough chop and will it be okay to use?
