Stir Fried Bok Choy

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.
