    Good and simple. I added mushrooms and cut back a bit on the ginger. It was too salty, but I didn't have reduced sodium soy sauce. This definitely needs it!
    Love it. It's delicious, easy to fix and healthy. I used baby bok choy...not sure what the difference is as this is my first time cooking bok choy. I will definitely be using this recipe again...may try it with ponzu sauce as someone recommended next time.
    So yummy!
    I used dried ginger (sweetened) and followed all else...great!
    Really delicious and easy to make. Everyone loves the flavor and my daughter who does not like Chinese food asks for this dish. Enjoy!
    Though the recipe has potential and it was easy the taste was just... meh. The salty needs a bit of sweet to balance it out and with some other tweaking might be transformed into something pretty good. We get a lot of greens in our weekly CSA bin, but I probably will look for a new recipe next time.
    So simple and so tasty.
    So good! So quick! This has become one of my favorites.
    I belong to Bountiful Baskets a food co-op and I received two Bok Choy in my basket. I used this recipe. So easy and delicious. 
    I doubled the ginger, garlic and soy to the recipe but used it as a marinade for sliced sirloin steak. Then added the steak in my stir-fry. Served it over Jasmine rice. My husband loved it. A great fast and easy mid week meal.
    Fantastic quick and simple recipe! This is also my first time cooking bok choy. It will definitely not be my last!
    Yummy! I picked up some bok choy from the farmer's market & this was my first time cooking it. I thought it wouldn't be enough soy sauce, but it was plenty. I paired it with a sirloin & I will try making some fried rice next time. Also, there is nothing wrong with cooking this in olive oil.
    Very tasty, I added little white wine after I sautéed the garlic and ginger. Very simply tasty!
    I have never cooked book chop before. It was tasty and delicious, FYI I subbed ponzu sauce citrus flavored for the soy sauce, less sodium. Highly recommend, I then poured it over chicken cutlets I had browned as well.
    Great recipe.
    A great way to get my kids to eat a new veggie.
    Very easy and quick to prepare. Also, very tasty. I used sesame oil instead of olive oil. It makes a delicious side dish.
    Perfect side to accompany miso-glazed halibut and brown rice. I added spinach as well and used jarred minced ginger, and it was delightful. Definitely a new staple!
    Simple and easy...delicious! I used 1 tsp. ground ginger instead of fresh, and it was not a problem. Eats well with grilled salmon and acorn squash.
    So quick and easy; the best Bok Choy recipe I have tried. I used minced crystallized ginger and it worked out OK. Next time it will be fresh ginger. Simply Delicious!!!
    Made this for my mother-in-law who loves bok choy and she loved it! Super easy to make and a great way to score points!
    This is the first time I've made bok choy, and I was pleasantly surprised. I really like how it combines a cooked-spinach feel with a bit of crunch. This recipe is very simple and comes together in about 10 minutes, chopping included. It has a distinct "Asian" feel, and went well with some cooked rice on the side. I love both garlic and ginger, so I went a bit heavy on the both of those, and it was delicious. This will definitely be a staple in our home!
    I really liked this dish, but I think it needs more ginger and I'll add more next time.
    Now THIS is yummy! A great, healthy, easy alternative to the traditional veggies for dinner.
    Very flavorful, crisp and delicious. Wonderful blending of flavors
    I used pickled ginger instead of fresh or dried ginger and this turned out amazing! Served with a chimichurri flank steak and was a great combination of flavors! Will definitely do this recipe again!
    Excellent. I added chick peas for the vegetarians in my family. They all but licked the plate!!
    Tasty, fast, healthy. I used dry ginger, was still good
    This came out great and it is very delicious,but i used soyabean oil instead of olive oil.My family loves it
    Very yummy! I added a bit more ginger and less garlic for my taste...and will make this often.
    Great! Haven't cooked too much Bok Choy and wasn't sure what to do.. this worked nicely.
