I am going to go straight to the Bok Choy recipe because this is how I like to read the recipes myself.
[For 2 Servings]
3-4 bunches of Cleaned and Washed Bok Choy, Trim it at the root to get individual leaves, 2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled and minced. 1-2 Green chilly peppers, A Tbsp of Hoisin Sauce, A Tbsp of Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper, Optional – Sesame seeds to garnish.
Here is how you cook Bok Choy:
I use a 14” Cast Iron Skillet, but use any pan you have in the kitchen that would fit the ingredients. Heat the Skillet. Add Olive Oil, followed by Garlic, Peppers, Bok Choy, And the rest of the ingredients. Stir Fry for 2 minutes. Cover the pan and turn off the heat. Leave it alone for 5-10 minutes. Mix again before serving.
Eat with a side of proteins – Chicken, Mushrooms, Beans. Skip the Carbs.
But first my standard medical disclaimer only because I eat what I eat for a reason, beside the love of food itself.

Bok Choy and similar cruciferous vegetables are nutritious, delicious, low carb, and really easy to cook. They taste great and really require no special skill to cook. If you are eating for weight loss this is a great vegetable to add to your diet.
If you do not have a good pan or skillet, it is the perfect time to invest in a cast-iron skillet. This is the one I have for about 3 years and it has made all of the other pans in my kitchen redundant. Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
My kids have 3 Parakeets who are addicted to their millets and grains. I offer them fruits and vegetables every day but they almost always refuse to even taste it. I was totally surprised at how much they love their Bok Choy.
Bok Choy Nutrition
This sent me on a quest for Bok Choy Nutrition on USDA and Google Scholar websites. And here is what I found that A Cup of Bok Choy contains Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, Vit C, A, K, and Folate, along with trace amounts of many other essential micronutrients. And all this goodness for 9 Calories (If you are the Calorie Counting types). Source
