• 1 lb baby bok choy, cut into halves or quarters, lengthwise and rinsed
  • ½ Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced


Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Add garlic; cook until fragrant and golden, about 30 seconds. Add bok choy, stirring to evenly coat. Add 2 tablespoons water; cover and cook 2 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking, stirring a few times, until liquid has evaporated and bok choy is tender, about 2 minutes. Season with small amount of salt, if desired, and serve.

*Variations include:

  1. Using 1/2 TB toasted sesame seed oil (for oil), 2TB soy sauce instead of water to simmer, and sesame seeds at end of cooking
  2. Adding ginger for more aromatics, along with minced garlic. Add crushed pepper for heat if desired before covering to soften.
