I just sauteed some with onions, Bacos, and Bragg's. Pretty good. It's my first time cooking with the stuff though, so don't color me expert.

As long as 'bok choy suggestor' is not similar in color to burnt sienna. I never liked that crayon!

I generally just throw it in stir fry (I'll cut off the stems and throw them in with the other veggies and chop the leaves and throw them in towards the end). I also like it just steamed, either plain or with some onion and garlic thrown in.

O please do, Hulasue. I'm nuts for nuts! (Some would argue I could stop after the first half of that sentence)

3 tbsp groundnut oil

4 heads bok choy sliced lengthways

200g ****ake mushrooms, halved

1 bunch green onions sliced

30g cashew nuts

little bit red chilli flakes

sprigs coriander -optional



for the sauce

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp yellow bean paste (I have used hoisin before or black bean sauce when I couldn't find yellow bean)

1 birds eye chilli chopped

1 clove garlic sliced

1 thumb ginger grated

1 tsp brown sugar

1 dessert spoon cornstarch



sprigs fresh coriander -optional

udon noodles to serve -or other noodles



Directions

Mix all the sauce ingredients excluding the cornstarch togtether with 150ml water and set aside



heat 2 tbsp of the groundnut oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan or wok. Add the bok choy and saute for a couple of minutes until softened. Add 2 or 3 tbsp of the sauce stirring. Add the mushrooms and cook for a minute or so on high adding spoonfuls of the sauce until half is used up. Add the green onions, stirring until they wilt.



Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining sauce and add to pan stirring quickly until the asuce is thickened and generously coating the vegetables. If it starts to dry out add a couple of tbsp water. Remove from heat and add the cashews and bit of chilli and fresh coriander.



Serve with some thick and slippery udon noodles

love to use it asian style soups, it becomes nice and tender and absorbs flavor well.

also a great addition to those cheap noodle packs that we tend to eat when in a hurry or lazy, makes them seem a bit more healthy w/ bok choy too.

OMG!!! I love Bok Choy. I stir fry garlic in a little olive oil. Sprinkle pepper flakes in the oil as well. Then I saute the Bok Choy in it until tender. A little salt and pepper ..... Mmmmmmm.



Another one of my fav recipes is, I steam baby Bok Choy (cut in half) until tender. Then I top it with peanut dressing. It's a great side dish to a Japanese dish (usually I have miso tofu, or grilled Japanese eggplant, ect with it).



I also use it in my veggie soups and asian stir fries.



I'm not crazy about the stems, though. I use them, but I LOVE the greens of the Bok Choy much better.

um, stir-fried for like 30 seconds in hot oil and fresh garlic, placed on top of brown rice or soba noodles!



Less is always more :-p
