Sauteed Bok Choy with Garlic

Right after lil' sis's best friend finished making the Fried Rice with Chinese Sausage, Eggs, and Lettuce, I decided we might as well cook the bok choy since it was already on the counter.

Quick and easy.

As if you really needed a recipe!

Bok Choy Sauteed with Garlic 1

Sauteed Bok Choy with Garlic

You'll need:
1 bunch of bok choy or baby bok choy, separated and washed
3 cloves garlic, finely minced

Separate and clean the bok choy. You can cut them into 2-inch sections if you wish, or just leave them whole.

Finely mince 3 cloves, or more, of garlic.

In a wok or pan on high heat, drizzle a bit of oil and add garlic. The garlic should quickly soften, stir so it doesn't burn.

Add bok choy and toss until just wilted and bok choy is crisp-tender, or longer if you wish.

That's it! Sprinkle a bit of salt if you wish. I like my veggie side dishes to be quick and easy since there's already so much flavor in the meat dishes.

  7. Ann,
    Haha. No. Just lazy about posting on some days. :)

    Yup! I do that too.

    Haha. There's only so many ways to saute greens, right? I usually cut off the ends too, but the boys did the plucking and cooking this night.

    I should eat this every night, but I have bad eating habits.
