Bought a giant bag of bok choy at the Asian market to make dumplings -- any great/easy recipes for the rest? Thanks!

    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

      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...

        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.

          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.

            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.

              Everyone I've served it to likes this Bok Choy Salad http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Rosies-B...
              although I do have to warn people that it's not at all a healthy salad, with all the sugar and oil.

              However, I think you only need to use half the dressing called for.
