Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Roasted Peanuts
Not too long ago, I got bok choy from the choice group at our CSA. I didn't really know what I wanted to do with it, so since it's Deborah Madison month, I flipped through her books for some ideas. I decided on this recipe for Stir-Fried Bok Choy with Roasted Peanuts from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. It made a nice, simple, surprisingly filling weeknight dinner.
The recipe is simple: bok choy, peanuts, a little garlic and ginger, soy sauce and some cornstarch to thicken it up. Of course, as I was already stir-frying I reached for my soy sauce only to find that I had a bit less than half the amount called for, so I used teriyaki sauce for the rest. I thought it came out delicious anyway, maybe even better. The peanuts gave it a nice crunch and red pepper flakes make everything better.
