Stir-Fried Baby Bok Choy Recipe:


  1 pound baby bok choy

  2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  3 cloves garlic, minced

  1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

  2 tablespoons soy sauce

  1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional)

  1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)

  1 teaspoon rice vinegar (optional)

  Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional, for some heat)

  Sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish (optional)


1. Prepare the Baby Bok Choy:

Rinse the baby bok choy under cold water to remove any dirt or debris.

Cut off the bottom inch of the stems. If the leaves are large, you can also cut them into smaller, more manageable pieces.

2. Heat the Pan:

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat.

3. Add Aromatics:

Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the hot oil. Stir-fry for about 30 seconds or until they become fragrant.

4. Stir-Fry Baby Bok Choy:

Stir in the sliced bell pepper and halved cherry tomatoes. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender but still crisp.

Season and Finish:

Add the baby bok choy to the pan. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, tossing the bok choy with the garlic and ginger. The bok choy should be slightly wilted but still crisp.

5. Seasoning:

Drizzle the soy sauce over the bok choy and toss to coat evenly. If using, add oyster sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Toss again to combine.

6. Garnish and Serve:

Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.

7. Serve:

Transfer the stir-fried baby bok choy to a serving platter and serve immediately. It makes a great side dish for rice or noodles.

Feel free to customize the recipe based on your preferences. You can also add other vegetables or proteins like mushrooms, carrots, or tofu for a more substantial dish. Enjoy your delicious stir-fried baby bok choy!
