One of the most difficult things about cooking with bok choy is cleaning it. There are a lot of crevasses where dirt, grit and sand can get caught. Clean your bok choy thoroughly because nothing can spoil a meal like a bite of sand!
This recipe starts off with our standard blanch-and-shock method. Plunge the bok choy into boiling salted water for a couple minutes, then submerge the veggies into ice water to set the color.
My original recipe included only two cloves of minced garlic, but as I was cooking, I was inspired to add lots more. Then, when I taste the almost-finished product, I noticed it needed a bit more of a sodium kick. Instead grabbing the kosher salt, I added a dash of tamari -- a gluten-free version of soy sauce.
