Chili Garlic Baby Bok Choy

Baby bok choy is one of my favourite vegetables. It is so much more tender than once it is fully grown. It is also hard to find and almost only available at Chinese food markets. This is a simple dish that I came up with after having it at a restaurant.

  1. I can find baby bok choy at my farmer’s market every few months or so. Can’t wait to find some very soon so I can try this. Thanks!
