Sesame Bok Choy Stir Fry****

Prep ingredients before starting to cook - it only takes minutes for the bok choy to wilt down.  There's heat from the red curry paste, sweetness from the sesame soy sauce, and crunchiness from the lettuce - has a great balance.

2 Tbsp soy sauce

2 Tbsp water

2 tsp honey or sugar

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

1 tsp red curry paste (or crushed red pepper flakes)

2 heads of bok choy

4 green onions, chopped

2 Tbsp canola oil

1 Tbsp ginger, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp peanuts, coarsely chopped


1. In a small bowl, mix soy sauce, water, honey, sesame oil, and curry paste; set aside.

2. Cut bok choy ribs and leaves crosswise into 2 inch pieces.

3. In a wok or large, deep skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add bok choy, green onions, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce mixture.  Stir-fry just until bok choy is wilted, about 3 minutes.  Serve and top with peanuts; if desired, serve over steamed rice.

I made this last week but used green garlic instead of green onions and it was delicious!

Thanks Amy, I had actually planned on doing the same swap out - but my mobile market basket was missing the green garlic last week :( I will try again soon after hearing your great review!
