Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root, grated
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 6 cups bok choy, cut crosswise ¼- to ½-inch-thick slices
  • 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and cook until lightly toasted, shaking the pan frequently, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer the seeds to a shallow dish and set aside.

Heat the oil in the same skillet over medium-low heat. Add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, stirring frequently, about 1 minute.

Add the bok choy, salt, and pepper. Stir-fry over medium-high heat until the bok choy is tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the sesame seeds and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving bowl.

Bok Choy Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Bok Choy Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
