Sauteed Baby Bok Choy with Sesame Oil – It’s a great addition to soup, stir fry, or just sauteed on its own. It will be your new favorite side dish!
Baby bok choy is my new favorite vegetable. I can’t believe I only tried it for the first time a couple months ago. I’ve really been missing out these last 23 years. Aside from the fact that it’s just absolutely adorable to look at it also tastes delicious. It’s a great addition to soup, stir fry, or just sauteed on its own — just make sure not to over cook it – otherwise the leaves will get all wilted and sad. I didn’t measure out any of the ingredients for this boy choy with sesame oil recipe – just a splash of this and that and it’s all you need for a light simple side dish (the perfect accompaniment to the steamed branzini).
A delicious vegan and gluten free side dish full of Asian flavors.
