Too much bok choy .. what to do?
Bought a giant bag of bok choy at the Asian market to make dumplings -- any great/easy recipes for the rest? Thanks!
i like it simply sauteed/braised in a little chick broth on the stovetop, flavored with soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce -- or black bean/chili sauce/paste. maybe splash on some rice wine vinegar and a little toasted sesame oil. toasted sesame seeds on top are good, too.
are these baby bok choy? if so, just split lengthwise. if large, roughly chop, cooking tougher portions with a headstart over more tender greens.
My normal use for bok choy is to stir fry it alone as a vegetable. I also use it for creating salads, specifically a cabbage-type salad. Then I use it in soup. For the later I usually make what this family calls "do it yourself soup". Chicken broth poured over cooked (thin) noodles and sliced bok choy. Then they can add whatever appeals; pieces of ham or char siu, hard cooked eggs, cilantro, cut up scallions, etc.
We've always made a salad, from Delia's TV program I think.
Chopped bok choy, drained canned tuna and cannillini beans, red onions and a dressing.. I can't seem to find it online or remember exactly how it went but it's pretty good!
Something like this but the greens were bok choy.
I stirfry with garlic and a pinch of chile flakes, and after it's off the heat, sprinkle with a shiso/sesame seed mix like Eden Shake (is that what's it's called?) and maybe a drop of toasted sesame oil. It reduces in volume mightily.
Or you could adventure into small scale kimchi production...
Since it's a member of the cabbage family, use it any cabbage type recipe, although you might want to alter the other ingredients slightly depending on what recipe you choose
