Baby Bok Choy

I’ve been looking at the baby bok choy in the produce market for a few weeks, but wasn’t sure exactly what I’d do with it once I got home. After a little research, I found this recipe which seemed easy enough and explained how to get started. After rinsing, you pull off the larger leaves, trim the bottom, and then leave the smaller leaves intact. I was surprised at how tender the stalks were after a short time on the stove! I will definitely make this again, and the soy and sesame flavors will complement just about any meal.

1 T canola oil
1 t minced garlic
1/2 bunch scallions, chopped
5-6 heads baby bok choy
Dash sesame oil
Dash soy sauce

Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add garlic, scallions, and bok choy. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove cover and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, until tender. Add the sesame oil and soy sauce and toss before serving.
