Add the remaining one teaspoon of oil to the skillet, along with the garlic, ginger and green onions. Stir-fry for 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Add the sauce mixture and cook stirring for 30 seconds or until slightly thickened.

Return the baby bok choy to the skillet and toss to coat and re-heat.

Can be served over some steamed rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.

After we finished the tomato, feta and pesto phyllo tart, Sean made this dish later on. This stir-fry was super quick, easy to make, and it was packed with flavor.

Ginger, garlic, scallions, soy sauce, and sesame oil gave the bok choy lots of deliciousness without losing any crunch and refresh-ness.

Because it was kind late, we just had it directly, delicious enough. But it would be even better with some steamed rice underneath.

A quick yet yummy week-night meal solution!
