Recipe: Stir Fry Bok Choy [Quick + Easy]

Recipe: Stir Fry Bok Choy [Quick + Easy]

When I arrive home from school every night, I'm ready for a dinner that is healthy, quick + easy. Last semester, while studying Traditional Chinese Medicine, I came across this simple bok choy recipe from [Woks of Life] (clink the link to check them out; they're the encyclopedia on authentic Chinese cuisine). Here is my version with a few, minor ingredient and preparation changes. Meal prep it for the week ahead or cook it up on the spot. It takes no time at all!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of bok choy
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 sesame oil
  • Pinch of white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of chicken broth 

Cooking Appliances

  • Cutting knives + cutting board
  • Big bowl + colander, strainer 
  • Measurement cups
  • Wok 
  • Spoon, something to stir with

Instructions

  1. Chop bok choy at a slight angle into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Soak veggies for 10 minutes in bowl of cold water. Massage + agitate to remove dirt. Rinse + shake in sink with a colander.
    (Woks of Life suggests repeating the process up to 3 times and using the dirty water for house plants.)
  3. Heat wok on low. Add oil, ginger + garlic.
  4. Add bok choy and turn heat up to the highest setting. Stir fry for 30 seconds with scooping motion to equally coat veggies. 
  5. Add salt, sesame oil, white pepper and chicken broth. Stir fry uncovered for another 1-2 minutes. 
  6. Plate and enjoy! Keep the process quick to optimize taste. 
    (WoL: The veggie soup liquid at the bottom is full of vitamins, perfect for drizzling on a bowl of rice.)
