Bok Choy

Want to add some an Asian flare to your meal?  Sick of kale? Sick of spinach? Cook up some Bok Choy! This sounds like the beginning to a cheesy Infomercial, “Call 1800-BOK-CHOY, to get yours today for just $9.99, but wait there is more…”  There is more, with just a few steps this side dish will ramp up dinner.  Make sure you use the whole plant and not just the leafy green part.  I cut up the white stems super thin and sauté at the same time and it adds a crunch to the soft wilted greens.  With a few simple ingredients and steps this becomes an excellent choice for any meal.

“Bok choy is one of the popular leafy-vegetables very low in calories. Nonetheless, it is very rich source of many vital phyto-nutrients, vitamins, minerals and health-benefiting anti-oxidants” 

  1. 1 large head of bok choy or 3-4 baby bok choy heads
  2. 1T toasted sesame oil
  3. 1T coconut oil
  4. 2 garlic cloves – minced
  5. 1/4 mushrooms-diced
  6. 1T fresh ginger – minced
  7. salt and pepper to taste
  8. 2T soy sauce or 2T coconut amines
  9. toasted sesame seeds to garnish
  1. cut the root end off and separate leaves
  2. rinse leaves under cold water, there is usually a lot of dirt in bok choy
  3. cut the leafy part of the plant in thick ribbons
  4. cut the white part into thin strips
  5. heat sesame oil and coconut oil on high in skillet
  6. once hot add bok choy, garlic, ginger,  mushrooms, salt, pepper, soy or coconut aminos
  7. cook until softened about 5-8 minutes
  8. garnish with toasted sesame seeds
  9. Enjoy!

    Bok Choy is a staple in my house weekly. We love our stir fry with it.
