What is Bok Choy?
- Bok choy, commonly called Chinese cabbage or Pak Choy, is a staple ingredient in Asian cooking.
- It has a mild and refreshing flavor.
- The leaves are tender but crisp, and it can be eaten raw or cooked.
- Bok Choy is great in stir-frys, soups, salads, and noodle dishes.
What can you add to the Stir-Fry?
To keep it vegan, but make the meal a bit heartier, add tofu. (Tangerine Grilled Tofu would be excellent.)
It would also be delicious with Asian marinated steak or chicken.

- grapeseed oil
- ¼ cup garlic cloves, roots removed, thinly sliced
- ⅓ cup shallots, thinly sliced
- 12 ounces baby Bok Choy
- 1 large orange (cut into supremes - click here for how to do it)
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
- Togarashi to taste
Coat the bottom of a medium-sized sauté pan with grape seed oil and place it over medium-high heat. Add the garlic slices and sauté until they are just turning golden brown, about 2 minutes or so. As soon as the garlic is ready, add the shallots and the bok choy, and cook just to wilt it, about 2 minutes. Mix in the oranges, orange juice, sesame oil and sesame seeds.
Sprinkle each portion with Togarashi to taste.
Togarashi is a Japanese spice blend that typically includes red chili pepper, black pepper, sesame seeds, dried mandarin orange peel, green nori seaweed flakes, ginger, hemp seeds and poppy seeds. A sprinkling of Togarashi adds great heat!
