I got a lot of bok choy and baby bok choy in my basket this year, which was great because it’s a green that is easy to use in stir fries and soups. In this recipe, I tried something new with baby bok choy and sautéed it whole.
Heat oil, and quickly stir fry garlic and green onions. Separate the larger outside leaves from the inner “core”, which can be left whole, and add to the pan. Cover the pan and let the bok choy steam for about 3 minutes, then cook with the cover off for another minute or two to let any extra water boil off. Not only is this veggie ready in under 10 minutes, serving the whole bok choy looks like it took way more effort than was actually required. That’s all there is to it, but if you want more details, click to read more.
