Bok Choy-- that I forgot to use last night

  • 6

I made an asian style soup last night and I forgot to add the bok choy that I love and bought specifically for the soup. What can I do with it now? I already have dinner planned for the next few days and it doesn't really fit in. can you guys help me out?

    1. If you like Chinese Black Mushrooms, there is an excellent recipe for Bok Choy with Black Mushrooms at Saveur.com; just click on their "Recipe" section and type in the word Bok Choy and you will get the recipe. It's delicious, easy and very authentic.

      1. Is it the baby kind? We had grilled (yes, grilled!) baby bok choy for the first time last week, and it was so tasty.

        Cut in half lengthwise, brush each side with olive oil, sprinkle with S&P, drizzle balsamic over both sides. Grill cut side down for about 5 min. It gets this sweet and smoky flavor that's a really nice change from the usual asian treatments.

        1. Stir-fry it with garlic and diced tomatoes.

          Separate the invdividual stalks by cutting off the bottom. Wash and drain. Mince some garlic. Dice some tomatoes.

          In a hot wok/pan, brown the garlic in hot corn oil. Then add the bok choy. Stir-fry it until it is almost tender but still crisp. Add a spritz of lemon juice and a bit of soy sauce. Throw in tomatoes with accompanying juices. Stir it around for about a minute. Reduce heat to low-medium. Cover and simmer for one or two minutes. Bok choy should be tender and crisp. Then serve.

          1. You could go even simpler and do:

            Simple boiling of the bok choy in salted water

            Stir fry of bok choy and garlic. Add a bit of soy sauce and oyster sauce (if you have it) towards the end of the cooking process
