Ginger Garlic Bok Choy

Bok Choy, a vegetable that deserves much more attention than it gets, is really easy to make and has some great qualities!  Straight up sautéed greens, like spinach or kale, are a little too much for some people, especially those that don't like their vegetables.  Bok choy gives you the benefits of super nutrient dense leafy greens, while also adding in a very juicy, slightly sweet stalk!  The ginger and garlic add further nutrients and some great flavor.  I personally love to add sautéed onions with this for some extra sweetness and flavor.  I might be biased with the onions though; they make just about everything taste better in my book.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of bok choy, rinsed

  • 1 white onion

  • 2 minced garlic cloves (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (or fresh minced if you have it)

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • sea salt

Directions

  1. Cut bok choy stalks into 1 inch pieces. leave leaves to the side

  2. Cut onion into ~1 inch pieces (see picture)

  3. Melt coconut oil on pan (medium heat)

  4. Add the onions and bok choy stalks, stir for a few minutes, cover for 2-3 minutes

  5. Chop the leaves while the onions and stalks are cooking

  6. When the onions begin to get translucent, add the leaves, garlic, ginger and salt

  7. Stir for just a few minutes until the leaves cook down (this happens very quickly)

Part of this easy, simple, balanced meal!
