Easy Bok Choy

There's no better way to enjoy the crisp delicate taste of bok choy. This basic stir-fry can be served as is, or you can add meat or tofu to make it more substantial. Quick and easy, this is a excellent way to load up on leafy greens. Serve with fluffy white rice, or over noodles in soup. The bok choy cooks down quite a bit, so the raw amount may look like it will be too much before cooking. You can use regular bok choy instead of baby bok choy if you like, although you may prefer the sweeter and more delicate flavor of baby bok choy. If you want a more robust flavor, feel free to add some soy sauce or oyster sauce to the finished product, but you may like to let the simple but delicious taste of the bok choy shine through.


4 servings


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
8 heads baby bok choy, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces
salt to taste


Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat, and cook the garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the bok choy, and cook and stir until the green parts of the leaves turn bright green and the stalks become slightly translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with salt to serve.
