Bok Choy in Ginger Sauce

Most nights I enjoy a simple dinner consisting of rice, stir-fry veggies… and that’s it. When you have a great veggie side dish like this, you don’t always need multi-course meal. The slivers of ginger aren't overpowering, yet, fragrant and tasteful enough to give the leafy greens a delicious flavor.

Whenever I make this dish, I often eat it with sinangag (Filipino garlic rice), a dollop of chili oil, and an egg (next level!).

Other ways to enjoy this is with grilled fish, shrimp, chicken, and steamed rice.

You can get creative with this dish and use a number of different green leafy veggies. Chinese broccoli and spinach (with long stems still attached) work well, too!
