Comments

This is a tasty healthy side dish. I ate it with rice and tofu for a meal. If you aren't familiar with bok choy this is a great recipe to start with. If you enjoy other cabbages, you'll like this. 

This recipe is so simple and delicious! After cooking, the Bok Choy really shrinks, so you will probably want to double the recipe :)
