This Soy and Garlic Sautéed Bok Choy is my new vegetable obsession. It is soooooooo yummy, and I cannot get enough of it…I’ve been making it 2-3 times a week at least. It cooks up really fast and easy too, so I can add a healthy veggie side dish to my meals in just a matter of a few minutes. And bonus – bok choy is super cheap and loaded with nutrients (it’s potassium levels are through the roof!) I like mine with lots of flavor, so I get a bit heavy handed with the garlic and soy. Feel free to use as much or as little of that as you like. I also like to occasionally add in some red pepper flakes for a little spice kick!
