I don't know much at all about cooking with Asian flavors, so I really got lucky with this creation. Try out different greens or a mixture with other vegetables (I bet broccoli and cauliflower would be good) but I love it with bok choy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all 7 first ingredients, for the sauce, in a small pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add white parts of the bok choy and cook on medium-low, covered, about 5 minutes, till softened.
  3. Add the green parts of bok choy and let cook 3-5 minutes more. Stir, remove from the heat, cover and let the greens soften further for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Dish it up and spoon some of the sauce over each serving. This is also quite good as leftovers served cold.

A good solid side dish. But then, it's made with bok choy! Made this to accompany Recipe #234169 and rice. Dinner was definitely great last night. Thnx for sharing your recipe, White Rose Child. Made for ZWT6 as a member of the Voracious Vagabonds.

YUMMY! Tastes similar to cooked pechay (bok choy) in the Philippines! I think it's because of the ginger flavor. So, of course we all loved it! :) I followed the recipe exactly as stated. Thanks!! Made for PAC Fall 2008.

Quick and healthy. I use a fresh tomato, chopped, rather than paste if I have it, for a nice color contrast. It works well with a clear chicken or vegetable broth.
