Bok Choy Stir Fry with Soy Sauce
Bok Choy Stir Fry with Soy Sauce
We love to eat greens and I know it is a part of a healthy lifestyle. Last weekend we visited NTUC FairPrice in Ang Mo Kio and bought fresh veggies for this week. Usually I buy few greens to cook few times within the week. 
This week I noticed this greens, they name it as Japanese Greens. Anyway, I found that this green is also called as Chinese cabbage or Bok Choy.

Bok Choy/Chinese Cabbage/Japanese Green
I wanted to try it for Sunday dinner, and thought of having it as a stir fry, but without many ingredients. This way, we could taste these greens better without having other flavours.
But, I didn’t want to have it with raw taste. You know, that some greens are full of raw taste which will spoil entire taste of the dish once cooked! To avoid the raw taste, I first blanched the leaves in hot water. However, I didn’t forget to add the leaves into cold water just after blanching to stop discolouring.So,I could save the lovely green colour for this dish until serving.
Bok Choy Stir Fry with Soy Sauce
If you read the recipe, you’ll notice that I only used soy sauce. Don’t worry. Without common ingredients for any stir fry such as garlic and ginger, this Bok Choy dish was delicious. We could taste the fresh greens with some soy sauce flavor and this dish was well matching with other dishes I cooked.(Fish Balls and a salad with alfalfa)
