Used to stir fry bakchoy with garlic and some oyster. This is something different, makes me salivate as usual! ;)

wow superb recipe~ I've been wondering how to cook the bok choy other than the stir fry... kootu is the best I guess :) flax seed powder makes it doubly delightful and healthy!!.. very much eager to try it out...
