This SUPER quick and fun side is simple, fast and tasty! I whipped this up in just a few minutes and ate it with left overs. This would go great with Thai, Indian or Chinese food! The leafy green with the red flakes of seasoning make it a great cold weather delicacy!
2 heads baby bok choy, washed and cut lengthwise
2 Tsbp oil (any works, I used sesame)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp seasoning of choice (chili powder, paprika, cumin) base the seasoning on what you're serving this with!
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. While the pan heats, coat the baby bok choy in oil. Once the greens are evenly coated in oil, add the spices of choice, salt and pepper. Place the greens in the hot pan, flat side down. Sauté for 3 minutes on high, flip to other side. Repeat this step 2 times. Rotating greens from side to side will prevent the greens from burning or wilting. If the greens start to look too browned lower heat, or remove the greens from pan. Note: If your bok choys are larger, you can also try blanching them quickly in a pot of hot water, then sauté in the pan. This cooks them all the way through without burning.
Serve over rice as a side dish or as the main course for a lighter meal!
