Bok Choy Sesame Stir-Fry

by simplylife on June 16, 2011

After making it home with my fist CSA share and finally satisfying my curiosity of what a Hakurei Turnip was, I then realized that I had a week’s worth of produce and no clue what to do with it.  I’m not one of those people who can just open the fridge, look around, click my heals and produce something gourmet.  

No, I need a plan.  

So I got to looking around for different recipes; who knew that Boy Choy could do so much?!  If you’re unfamiliar with this leafy green or hesitant to give it a try, this is a great recipe to go with!  The combination of fresh vegetables with wide, flat noodles and sesame seeds definitely was all the reason I needed to understand why we decided to support this CSA!

For this dish I made a sauce combining Trader Joe’s General Tsao Stir Fry Sauce with a bit of Sesame Oil, Low-Sodium Soy Sauce and Ginger.  I heated that in a large skillet over medium-high heat then added chopped Garlic and sliced Hakurei Turnips.  After cooking those for a few minutes, I threw in the Bok Choy and Edamame. Meanwhile, I made Flat Egg Noodles in a separate pot, then combined them with the vegetables and topped it all with Toasted Sesame Seeds.  Enjoy!~What is your favorite way to eat Bok Choy?

  • Carolyn Jung

    Wow, those are regular egg noodles? At first glance I thought they might be rice noodles like in chow fun dishes. The noodles look delicious! And kudos for you for creating something so seasonal and wonderful.

  • yummychunklet

    My mother makes a bok choy recipe with a beef based broth in soup. It's so delicious.

  • Justeen @ Blissful Baking

    This stir fry looks amazing! I love that you added noodles to it. My favorite way to eat bok choy is raw in a salad with a simple soy vinaigrette. Delish!

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I love it in stir fries the best! Yours look so delicious with those thick flat noodles 🙂

  • decocinasytacones

    Hmmm, I need a plan too, I only improvise for dinners sometimes, some fried eggs with ham, fried eggs with french fries…..omelettes of any kind, but nothing else.
    This is something I should try.
    Love from Spain

  • Wendy (The Local Cook)

    I love it sauteed, like I did in this post:

  • Indie.Tea

    I like bok choy stir-fried too…with a meaty mushroom (such as shittake). Your version sounds much more complex, and really delicious.

  • Shirley

    This looks like one healthy delicious dish!

  • Lauren at Keep It Sweet

  • Jeanette

    I just joined a CSA this year too, and got some bok choy in my box this week. I'm planning on stir-frying it with some shitake mushrooms and ginger. I've never heard of or seen Hakurei turnips before – looking forward to seeing what you get in your weekly box!

  • Cait’s Plate

    I don't often integrate bock choy into my life but I really should do it more often. I really only get it if it's in something when I eat out. This looks delicious though – those noodles!! I'm drooling 🙂

  • julie

  • Nicole@HeatOvenTo350

    One thing about a CSA that I love it that is really forces you to be creative. I'd say you succeeded with this dish. You stir fry is beautiful!

  • Kristen @ Swanky Dietitian

    This looks amazing! I love the wide noodles. Yum!
    To be honest, I think the only times I have bok choy are in asian dishes. So good!

  • H

    wow your photos are amazing!
    I love bok choy any way….usually I sautee it with a little bit of sesame oil and some soy sauce, but a two nights ago I made it on the grill (just sprayed with a touch of olive oil, and then grilled) and it was fantastic! Everyone in my family agreed that it's probably our new favorite way to eat bok choy 🙂
