Crispy Garlic Ginger Bok Choy Recipe

Crispy Garlic Ginger Bok Choy Recipe

Spicy and and full of flavor, Crispy Garlic Ginger Baby Bok Choy is an addicting snack, a scrumptious side dish and would add perfectly to a menu celebrating the Chinese New Year!

The celebration for the Chinese New Year is a fifteen-day festival, and this year it begins on January 31st — that’s this Friday!   Though I’m not even close to being an authority on this holiday, it seems to be focused greatly around family — and food.  (Here’s a great overview of the holiday.)

I absolutely love Asian flavors and greens, and this quick and easy recipe is a fun way to use Baby Bok Choy to kick off a Chinese New Year feast — or any meal, really.  Or, here’s another idea . . . make this for a super cool Superbowl Game Day snack — February 2nd — that’s this Sunday!In addition to Baby Bok Choy, Melissa’s Produce sent me a beautiful collection of other Asian produce.  So stay tuned, because I’ll be cooking with them all week!
