  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp soya sauce

  1. Cut, wash and rinse the baby bok choy. On this picture I did cut out the core. With baby bok choy that is not really necessary, it’s totally up to you. I use my salad spinner to make the bok choy as dry as possible.
  2. Mince the garlic, add 2 tbsp olive oil to your hot wok or skillet. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the red pepper flakes. Make sure you don’t burn the garlic. Then add the baby bok choy. Stir Fry for about 1 min. Add the salt and the sweet soya sauce. Serve over rice and a sunny side up fried egg. Prick the egg yolk and mix with the bok choy.
