Garlic and Lime Bok Choy

Bok Choy is a Chinese cabbage that proves to be one of the best sources for protein and iron. I use it constantly and in many ways but my favorite is to use it as a bed for a hearty stew, roasted veggie or tofu. This is a versatile way to prepare bok choy and it is simple and fast. This time I served it along side a squash soup.

You will need:

6 large leaves of freshly washed Bok Choy
3 cloves garlic, chopped
3 boiler onions, sliced
Tbl. Grape seed Oil
Tbl. lemon juice

On low heat in a skillet, mix onions, garlic, oil, s/p and lemon juice; saute. Wash and chop bok choy into desired pieces and add to skillet once the onions and garlic are browned. Raise head to medium and mix. Wilt the bok choy just until the leaves are a vibrant dark green. This is a dish to prepare when all other food is 5 or so minutes away from being finished. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG once the bok choy is in the skillet. A trick I have learned is to heat everything to the point of adding the bok choy and then turn it off. Finish the other food, place the bok choy in the skillet and with your hands turn the leaves in the oil until coated and then bring up to heat.
