*Veggies* Braised Bok Choy

I like to wander through the produce section at Meijer and find veggies I’ve never tried before. I find that the produce section at Meijer has the biggest variety (compared with Kroger, Marsh, Super Target). Anyway, so have you tried bok choy? Here’s a tasty way to get your greens!

I didn’t expect this dish to be much of a hit in my family, but they asked me to make it again soon. Even my veggie-averse 10 year old loved it!


1 cup 99% fat-free chicken broth
1 1/2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium clove garlic, minced
3/4 pound bok choy, trimmed and chopped (leaves only)- 6 to 8 cups
1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


1. Bring broth and butter and garlic to a simmer in a deep, large skillet. Add bok choy and simmer (covered) until tender, about 5 minutes. Use tongs to transfer bok choy to a serving dish and cover to keep warm.

2. Boil broth mixture until reduced to 1/4 cup, then stir in sesame oil and red pepper flakes. Pour mixture over bok choy and serve immediately.


*If preparing this recipe as gluten free, just be sure that you’re using a brand of chicken broth that is known to be GF.
