Recipe Snapshot


15 minutes


3 1/2 cups


Heat your oil over high heat in a large skillet (not non-stick) and add garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring constantly until they’re fragrant and starting to brown.


Stir in the chopped greens and stems all at once – the skillet will be full, so don’t be alarmed. Add dry sherry and cover the skillet with a well-fitting lid. Allow the bok choy to cook to allow it to soften and wilt.


Remove the lid and then sprinkle the bok choy with salt. Continue cooking, stirring often, until the Bok Choy is crisp, tender, and bright green. Finally, stir in the scallions and remove from the heat, then serve the dish sprinkled with sesame seeds.
