Simple Stir Fried Bok Choy


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoons garlic, minced (a couple cloves)
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 2-3 green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced, white & green parts separated
  • 1 bunch baby bok choy, halved lengthwise, with bottoms trimmed but left intact
  • Kosher salt & fresh pepper to taste


In wok or large sauté pan over moderately high heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking. Add garlic, ginger, and white parts of scallions and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add bok choy and sear until tips have wilted and stalks are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Garnish with green parts of scallions and serve immediately.
