    (about 1 lb.) baby bok choy, halved, washed and drained

    canola oil

    shallots (about 2 to 3 tbsp.), finely chopped

How To Make quick & easy bok choy

  • 1
    Cut bok choy in half or quarters and transfer to a large bowl filled with cold water. Swish them around to dislodge any dirt or grit; drain them in a colander.
  • 2
    In a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and when hot, add shallots & garlic; sauté for 1 minute.
  • 3
    Add bok choy, chicken broth and soy sauce. Stir quickly until mixed, cover and cook for 1 minute.
  • 4
    Toss to coat, cover again and cook until the stems near the root end are tender, about 4 minutes, tossing half way. To know when they’re done, poke the stems with a fork and if it goes in easily with a slight resistance then they’re ready.
