  • Cut 1.5 pounds of baby bok choy into half.

  • While soaking the baby bok choy, mince 4 cloves of garlic. 
  • When the pak choi is clean, pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into a non-stick pan. Turn on medium fire, add minced garlic. Stir fry the garlic a little bit. 
  • After that, add the washed baby bok choy into the non-stick pan. Pour ½ cup of water and ⅛ teaspoon of salt (Add salt to your taste) into the vegetable. Cover the lid for a couple minutes. 
  • Next, flip the other side. Cover the lid again for 1 minute. Then, stir fry them a little bit until it's soft. 



Cooking tips for how to cook baby bok choy:

  • Wash and soak baby bok choi very well. Soak them at least 15 minutes and rinse them a few minutes (3 times) to remove the sand and mud. 
  • Normally, I cut baby pak choy into half because it’s easier to clean and cook faster. 
  • Add water, salt and cover the lid for a couple minutes. Then, flip the other side, cover the lid again for 1 minute and stir fry a little bit.
