My favorite new lunch...
I got these tiny bok choy at the Asian Market "A Dong" in West Hartford. It's a fabulous place for all things Asian. Everything from Peeking Duck, to whole fish, incredible vegetables, bread, candy, dishes, at least a thousand kinds of noodles - almost everything is labeled in oriental script with very little English. Most things I can recognize and make decisions from that. Sometimes I just take a shot and give new things a try.
I had never seen bok choy this tiny - the bag was actually labled "toy."
I cut them in half and sauteed them with lots of chopped garlic and ginger in a bit of vegatable oil.
While the bok choy is sauteing in the pan, I boil up the noodles. It only takes a few minutes.
You have to rince the noodles with cool water when they are done. I let them drain. If the bok choy is not quite done, I'll splash in a bit of water and put the lid on the frying pan and let them soften just a bit.
The first time I made the dish I made my own sauce with soy sauce, chicken broth, fish sauce, and a few other things but the second time I was in a rush and used "Soy Vay Island Teriyaki." It was delicious! I have to say I love this stuff! I use it on salmon, chicken, fried rice and lots of other things. It has a citrus base and mixed with a light soy sauce and sesame seeds (plus other ingredients, of course) and besides, I love the story. Jewish boy meets and falls in love with Asian girl and they start a company.
That's it. Put the noodles in a bowl, spoon the bok choy on top, pour on a bit of Island Teriyaki and enjoy!
