A blog about cooking and food, and how to make it taste good and be healthy. The dishes are almost all gluten/dairy free, and many are vegetarian. The focus is on techniques and ingredients over recipes - this is about everyday cooking, and that means making it work with whats on hand!

Sauteed Bok Choy

I got some fresh organic bok choy from the farmers' market, and wanted to cook it in a way that let its flavor come through. I chose to quickly saute it, a cooking method that works well with fresh summer vegatables.

When you saute something, you cook it quickly over strong heat with a little oil. Most vegetables can be eaten raw, and it's difficult to undercook, and easy to overcook, so err on the "undercooked" side. I used a little olive oil with some crushed and minced ginger and garlic. I added only the chopped bok choy, salt, lemon pepper, szechwan pepper, and some fresh herbs (cilantro, globe basil) from the garden. Bok choy is especially common in Chinese cuisine, and I tried to use traditional flavors, but omitting soy sauce.
