I love bok choy, and this recipe is a simple, tasty and quick-fix way to make it. I liked the garlic flavor and the tanginess of the rice vinegar and sugar. I added some sliced onion, just as my preference. Thanx for a great new bok choy recipe!

I love this--the "glaze" has great flavor. The only issue I had was that I wanted to make this into a vegetarian *meal*, so only having bok choy didn't seem like enough variety. So--as you can see in the picture I uploaded--I added red and orange bell peppers, 5 Thai chili peppers (whole), and 2 rainbow carrots. Because of all that I added, I changed the amount of ingredients to serve 5 instead of the 4 that the recipe is listed for.
