Bok Choy with Onion

bok choy with onion
This recipe for bok choy is so simple it’s almost not a recipe at all but a suggestion to cook up some tasty bok choy. This vegetable with succulent white stems and dark leafy greens at top tastes delicious slightly cooked. In the photo, both the white and the green are parts of the bok choy. The purplish red is the red onion.


  • Olive oil
  • 1 onion, red or yellow
  • 1 bunch of bok choy

Chop up the bok choy into bite size pieces. Chop up the onion. Warm a wok-like saucepan with olive oil, then add the chopped onion and saute for about five minutes. Add the bok choy, mix with the onions, and saute for about ten minutes. Serve warm. Or, if you are like me and you make this hours before serving, serve at room temperature (though I think it tastes best warm – but don’t recook it, that will ruin the dish).
