Number of Servings: 6


    2 cups chicken broth
    12 dried shitake mushrooms
    1 - 2 cloves of garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
    4 cups chopped bok choy, leaves only (unless you are using baby bok choy)
    2 tablespoons corn starch
    1/4 cup cool water
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup bamboo shoots, sliced
    1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


Pour one cup boiling water over shitake mushrooms and allow them to sit, covered for 30 minutes. Toast sesame seeds on a dry fry pan, shaking constantly over high heat until seeds start to pop, remove from pan to cool.
When they are ready add the cornstarch to 1/4 cup of cool water and set aside. Slice the mushrooms into bite sized pieces, removing the stems, and pour the soaking liquid into a skillet. Add garlic and ginger. Simmer for a few minutes and then add the mushrooms, the bamboo shoots, the broth and the soy sauce. Simmer for at least 5 minutes.
Steam the boy choy separately (2-3 minutes, checking and tossing often). Whole baby bok choy may take a little longer.
Add the bok choy to the mixture. Stir in the cornstarch till it's as thick as you like it. Serve over rice.
