Nutritional Benefits:

Bok Choy: This leafy green is a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s low in calories but high in vitamins A, C, and K, which are essential for maintaining good vision, a healthy immune system, and strong bones. Bok choy is also a good source of calcium and potassium, contributing to heart and bone health.

Mushrooms: Mushrooms are not only flavorful but also packed with health benefits. They’re rich in antioxidants, which help protect your body from harmful free radicals. Mushrooms are also a great source of B vitamins, selenium, and fiber. They can help boost the immune system, improve digestion, and support metabolic functions.


Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 T water
  • 2 T tamari or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 T oyster sauce (or vegetarian oyster sauce)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil


  • 1 tsp tapioca flour
  • 1 T water

Stir Fry Ingredients:

  • 450g (1 lb) baby bok choy, cut into large bite-size pieces
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 1/2 T olive oil
  • 450g  (1 lb) brown mushrooms, halved and quartered
  • 4 dried chili peppers (optional)
  • 2 tsps minced ginger
  • 2 green onions


Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.


Heat 1/4 cup of water in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. When the water starts to boil, add the baby bok choy and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cover the pan and let steam for 30 seconds. Uncover the pan and stir the bok choy. Cover again and cook for another 30 seconds, until the baby bok choy has softened. Transfer the bok choy to a big platter.

Wipe the pan clean with paper towels and add 2 tablespoons of the oil, turn to high heat. Add the mushrooms. Let sear for 1 minute without touching. Then flip the mushrooms, cook and stir occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mushrooms are browned and there’s no juice left in the pan.

Move the mushrooms to one side of the pan. Pour the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil on the other side and add the chili peppers, garlic, ginger, and green onion. Stir a few times until the chili pepper turns dark red. Then stir everything together.

Pour in the sauce. Stir and cook for 30 seconds. Stir the thickener mixture together until the tapioca is fully dissolved. Swirl into the pan. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens, then transfer everything to a big plate. Serve hot as a side or over steamed rice as a main dish.
