Baby Bok Choy

I am lucky to have a small Asian store so close by to home. I have ample supply of fresh Asian vegetables every week. One of my favorite veggies to buy is baby bok choy. This is a very common vegetable in the Asian household. I prepared this simple vegetable when we have some guests over for dinner the other day.

Ingredients:

A big bunch of baby bak choy or any type of greens
3 cloves of garlic – chopped

Sauce:
1 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp of soy sauce
4 tbsp of water
1/2 tsp sugar

1. Wash the greens and toss dry. Bring a pot of water to boil. Blanch the vegetables for 12 seconds. Removed , toss dry and put the vegetables on a serving plate
2. Heat up 2 – 3 tbsp of olive oil and stir-fry the garlic until lightly brown. Removed the garlic and oil and set it aside.
3. In the same pan bring all the sauce ingredients to boil. Once boil pour the sauce over the vegetables. Top it with the fried garlic.

I always make this simple yet delicious veggie. Recently when my son was home, he remarked that a tiny bunch will cost him around 2 pounds in Pembroke.
