Here's a quick stir-fry using nutritious, crunchy bok choy. Shiitake mushrooms make a perfect partner for it. Serve this on its own or over rice.
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • About 8 stalks regular or 3 to 4 baby bok choy, stalks and leaves, sliced fairly thin on the diagonal
  • 4 to 6 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 heaping cup snow peas, trimmed and cut in half, or 1 cup baby carrots, quartered or halved lengthwise
  • 2 to 3 scallions, white and green parts, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons dry cooking sherry or white wine
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh or jarred ginger
  • Hot chili oil or other hot seasoning like Sriracha sauce, to taste
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a stir-fry pan. Add the onion and stir-fry over medium high heat until translucent.
  2. Add the bok choy, shiitakes, snow peas, soy sauce, and sherry or wine. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
