Though this dish is called Braised Baby Bok Choy, it’s more like a quick simmer just long enough to make the bok choy tender.
1 Tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb (454 g) baby bok choy, washed and drained, halved lengthwise
½ cup (120 ml) low-sodium vegetable broth
1 Tbsp (15 ml) low-sodium tamari
½ tsp (2.5 ml) dried crumbled dulse seaweed
½ tsp (2.5 ml) sesame oil
Heat olive oil in a very large skillet on medium high. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant but not brown, about 1 minute.
Nestle in the baby bok choy, cut side down, and add vegetable broth and tamari. Sprinkle dulse over the top, and drizzle with sesame oil. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes until just tender.
