In December I went out for an amazing 10 course Chinese banquet with some friends. It was absolutely delicious and when we left we waddled to the car. Being a foodie I wanted to know how it was all prepared, and luckily I had a fellow Chinese foodie letting me in on all the details.
Without going into too much detail it wasn’t the healthiest meal ever (think loads of deep frying, breading, oil and some msg). Well, this stir fried bok choy is much healthier than that. Bok Choy itself is a good source of vitamin C and with no deep frying, little oil and no MSG, this is a lovely light side with great asian flavours. You can reduce the sodium if necessary by lowering the amount of stir fry sauce you use. Also feel free to use baby bok choy as the original recipe calls for.

Adapted from Simple Comfort Food
Combine everything but the bok choy in a measuring cup. Chop Bok Choy, chopping whites a bit smaller then greens and wash thoroughly. Heat a large frying pan hot over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon peanut oil to pan then bok choy, toss and add 4 tablespoons of the stir fry sauce. Cook stirring and shaking pan regularly until whites tender and greens wilted. Serve immediately.
