sauteed baby bok choy

With just a few ingredients this simple, elegant preparation comes together in just a few minutes.  This side-dish is the perfect way to add some colorful crunch to just about any menu.

  • baby bok choy
  • sesame oil
  • garlic
  • salt
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)
  1. trim bok choy into individual leaves and rinse very well (bok choy tends to be quite sandy), then pat dry with a towel.
  2. heat a a few tablespoons of sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat (lower is better as the delicate leaves scorch easily). 
  3. when the oil is shimmering add the bok choy and gently stir to coat with oil. 
  4. cook until the leaves are wilted and the stalks soften a bit, about 5 minutes. 
  5. clear the bok choy from the center of the skillet and add minced garlic.  cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  6. season lightly with salt and stir gently to combine all ingredients.
  7. remove to a serving bowl and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
