Pak choi with garlic and soy

This really simple side dish that will go well with any East Asian meal. It takes no time to make but adds a lot to a meal. Four cloves of garlic might seem a lot for the this dish, but it is meant to be garlicky.


1 pack of pak choi
4 cloves of garlic
Soy sauce
Sesame seed oil

Mince the garlic into tiny little bits – as small as you can get them. Heat some oil in a pan and add the garlic – but only for about 20 seconds before you add the pak choi. Once the pak choi starts to wilt, add a splash of soy. Don’t cook for too long as you don’t want the garlic to burn.

    Lovely vegetable, and this would be a perfect extra to a a noodle and tofu dish. I grow pak choi in the summer – how many is in ‘a pack’?

    1. Usually about 2 heads – sorry, I should have been a bit more specific.

      I didn’t realise you could grow it in the UK. Is it easy to grow? Will definitely give it a go this summer!

        Thanks 🙂 And yes, dead easy to grow – just beware of slugs as they can eat the stems – and due to the rain, this year is likely to be a slug fest :-/
