Number of Servings: 4


    2 tbsp canola oil
    5 cloves garlic
    about 1" ginger root, sliced
    1 tsp crushed red pepper (or to taste)
    2.5 pounds trimmed baby bok choy
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    3 tbsp rice vinegar


Heat 2 tbsp canola oil in a big wok. Add the garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper, and toss until the garlic is nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside - you'll be putting it back later.

Make sure the bok choy is rinsed and dry, and toss in the wok until the leaves are wilted, about 10 minutes.

Add the soy sauce and rice vinegar into the pan, along with the garlic and ginger. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the stems become more tender. Don't let it cook too long, or the soy sauce will be absorbed into the stems and the dish will become bitter.

makes 4 1-cup servings.

Variations: Try adding five-spice powder.

Number of Servings: 4

    I cut down on the soy sauce, garlic as I am sensitive to spices: used a little less oil. Was the bok choy supposed to wilt without anything at all in my wok? I thought it might burn with nothing but a thin layer of oil from browning the garlic: used 1/4 cup water. Will try w/tofu CHAKRATEEZE! - 5/1/11

    Bok Choy was new to me and I liked it. I think the rice vinegar and soy sauce and garlic is a good flavoring for it. I will make it again. - 1/21/11

    I've never tried bok choy tonight but I loved it. I keep eating it off the plate before the rest of the family came to the table. What a great flavor combination of the rice vinegar and soy sauce and garlic. I'll definitely make again. - 11/12/09

    Very good - enjoyed the nutty flavor the browned garlic gave. Very easy to make and good use of a bunch of bok choy I had on hand. - 9/5/09
