Sauteed Bok Choy
Bok Choy is one of my favorite Asian vegetables. They are leafy, crisp and watery in texture. They are also super healthy and one of the easiest vegetables to make at home!
The taste of bok choy is so good that I can eat them every day, in simple saute dishes such as this ginger soy bok choy. Sauteed bok choy is utterly refreshing and delicious!
When it comes to cooking vegetables, less is more.
You only need a few key ingredients: aromatics such as garlic or ginger, soy sauce, squirts of lemon juice and salt. Bok choy has a very mild taste, so the vegetables soak up the flavors of seasonings and ingredients used in the recipe.
The end result is always beyond amazing.

Look yum ?. Could I use French beans or snake beans for this recipe?
I love bok choy and make it often, but please reconsider your description of the ginger “pieces”. Why? Because it reads as if every “piece” of ginger is one inch long, not wide… and you don’t say how thick they should be. Instead of “piece”, perhaps you could change the wording to something like “coin” so American English speakers can easily visualize what you mean. Example: (serves 4) 4 one inch wide coins of ginger, peeled and minced. For Americans, an approximate amount it should measure in terms of volume after chopping (teaspoons/tablespoons)…. or even an approx amount that it should weigh would be very helpful.
Regardless of “girth” 2 inches is 2 inches. A 2 inch length, peeled and minced. Not complicated for this English speaking american.
Rasa’s description has always been very clear to me, ginger is almost always similar in girth. No need for coins or any other nonsense.
Completely agree with Sophia. American English speaker in the house and I have no problem understanding Rasa’s description. As a matter of fact, describing it as “coin” would be more confusing, in my opinion. Rasa, you’re doing an awesome job and I enjoy your recipes.
Thanks for your support!
