Ginger-Sesame Bok Choy
Recipe from Everyday Food Magazine
Husband-Tested in Alice’s Kitchen
Here’s a low calorie delicious side dish that’s very quick to make. You’ll need a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid.
5 thin slices peeled fresh ginger
1 cup water
4 heads of baby bok choy, each halved or quartered lengthwise
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, bring 1 cup of water and the ginger slices to a boil. Add the bok choy; reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until the leaves are vibrant green and the stems are fork-tender, 3-5 minutes. Drain well; discard the ginger. Transfer to a platter.
While the bok choy is cooking, whisk together in a small bowl the vinegar, soy sauce and sesame oil. Drizzle over the cooked bok choy. Serve immediately.
