Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sodium-reduced chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 lb baby bok choy halved lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

Method

In small bowl, whisk together chicken broth, cornstarch, salt, sugar and pepper; set aside.

In wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry garlic for 5 seconds. Add bok choy; stir-fry until bright green, about 2 minutes. Cover and steam, stirring occasionally, until stalks are tender-crisp, 4 to 8 minutes.

Stir in cornstarch mixture and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until nearly no liquid remains, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plate; drizzle with sesame oil. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
