AK canning jar

I have a bunch of bok choy in the garden right now.  Lucky me!  This is a simple way to prepare it  as a side for dinner.  I also like to make this up and keep it in the fridge; in the morning I can heat it in a pan and cook an egg with it or dice up some leftover meat to serve with it.  Bok Choy with Shallots and Garlic also can turn a bit of leftover polenta or risotto into a simple lunch.  I hope you enjoy it!


The Recipe: Bok Choy with Shallots and Garlic


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 1 1/2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 1/4 pounds bok choy, rinsed and cut into 1/2" slices
  • fresh ground pepper, to taste


  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots and garlic and stir-fry until shallots become translucent. Add boo chou and stir-fry about 8-10 minutes until tender. Add pepper to taste.
