"One of my favourite ways of making bok choy! It is quick and simple. I usually use a large bunch of bok choy and double the sesame mixture. That feeds the two of us and some left over for lunch the next day."

Pull the leaves off the base of the bok choy and slice off the very bottom of the stem to remove any tough pieces.

Wash and pat dry; chop into bit size pieces.

Step 4

Heat wok or large frying pan over medium high heat.

Step 5

Add the sesame mixture to wok and add the bok choy.

Step 6

Stir fry for about 5-7 minutes (you want it to be a wee bit crunchy)

Step 7

Plate and drizzle with soy sauce if using and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

I have to tell you a little secret... I have never cooked bok choy :D This looked too good to pass up so I tried it. I cut the recipe down for just me and other than using low sodium soy sauce I made as directed. Loved it as a side with a noodle bowl I was having. Delicious!

I used 2 baby pak choy which was just enough for 2 of us and we absolutely loved this with our Satay Chicken, thank you Luvscookn, made for Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

This was good. Didn't have the sesame seeds although I looked in two stores for them. I used two bunches of Bok Choy.and one extra tsp of sesame oil. Cooked 10 minutes or more.

The ginger is wonderful ith the bokchoy. I meant to add some soy but was rushing to serve, take photo etc. It was very tasty without the soy. Very easy attractive tasty recipe

This is a great recipe for Bok Choy! It came together to make for a delicious evening meal. It's a recipe that looks as good as it tastes. Ginger, sesame seeds and a generous splash of soy sauce really make this dish! I am about ready for a rerun!
