How To Cook Baby Bok Choy

Wash the bok choy; bok choy tends to hold dirt around the stem bottoms, so soak and wash thoroughly.
Slice the bok choy lengthwise into even halves.

Steam bok choy for 3-4 minutes. Do not overcook. The stalks are fairly thin and do not require much steaming to soften them, and you don’t want the leafy tops to become overdone; by not
over cooking, you’ll preserve a crunchy texture in the stalk as well as more of the nutritional value.

In a skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add hot peppers, ginger, and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce and mix well.

Add steamed bok choy to the skillet and toss with the sauce until well coated.

If desired, top with toasted sesame seeds or crushed peanuts–it’s very tasty that way–but I like it just as well without.
This dish makes a complete meal when served with a rice or quinoa side.
