Sesame, garlic, and ginger bok choy

bokchoy1.jpgI had this big thing of bok choy from my CSA so I decided to make it for dinner.

Clean the leaves and separate the green and white parts. Thinly slice the white parts.

Mince several slices of fresh ginger.

Press several small cloves of garlic.

Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat with a little sesame oil. Heat the white parts of the bok choy until they start to soften. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for several more minutes.

Add the green leafy parts of the bok choy.

Serve with rice.

I ate the entire thing of bok choy for dinner with nothing else, but I had more than enough protein through the rest of the day. It would make an excellent side dish, too.
