I got really excited when I discovered this recipe and I wasn't disappointed. I made this exactly as written, using baby bok choy...oh, and I did halve the amount of sesame oil as a little of that goes a long way for us (but it's so good as well), and it was excellent! My husband lingered at the table and picked through with his chopsticks. So simple, quick and easy for after work and made even easier by the well-written instructions. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe Foodie and please share more :)
