photo by Enjolinfam
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 - 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated (a full teaspoon will make it pretty hot)
- 3⁄4 teaspoon tamari
- 1 tablespoon no-added-salt tomato paste
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 large garlic clove, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup vegetable broth
- 4 cups bok choy, chopped (including the white parts, chop them finely)
- Combine all 7 first ingredients, for the sauce, in a small pot and bring to a simmer.
- Add white parts of the bok choy and cook on medium-low, covered, about 5 minutes, till softened.
- 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.
- Dish it up and spoon some of the sauce over each serving. This is also quite good as leftovers served cold.

I love bok choy and this was a super quick, easy and delicious way to prepare it. I made sweet chili chicken last night and made this as a side to accompany it and it was gorgeous. My whole family are big bok choy fans and I have several recipes that we enjoy and this one will definitely be added to those favourites. Thanks for a super recipe!!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap4/group06grape.jpg> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/austmap_wattle_small-1.gif"> <img src="http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap3/group02banana.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/chefkoalas.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/calendar%20clips/Copyofsoybean.jpg" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Correa.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/DSC_0020.jpg"> <img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/My-3-Chefs%20banners/my3chefs2008Small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/tree20kangaroo2001-thumb-1.jpg"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group01avocado.jpg>
