Baby bok choy has a sweeter flavor than adult varieties. For a lighter taste, feel free to stir-fry the baby bok choy in olive oil. Low-sodium chicken broth can be used in place of water.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 bunches baby bok choy (basically, 1 bunch per person)
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • A few drops sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil for stir-frying

Preparation:

Wash the baby bok choy and drain. Cut the baby bok choy in half lengthwise, then cut across into small pieces. Separate the stalks from the leaves before cooking.
Heat wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add ginger and stir-fry briefly, for about 30 seconds, until the ginger is aromatic. Add the bok choy, adding the stalks first, and then the leaves. Stir in the soy sauce, sugar, and salt, and stir-fry on high heat for 1 minute.
Add the water, cover the wok and simmer for about 2 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil and serve. Serves 4.
