Just a recipe: baby bok choy
A friend sent me this. I made it and can confirm it's delicious, and so easy, and she gave me permission to pass it on:
Choose very small, tender baby bok choy. Slice them in two lengthwise and place them in a flat casserole, cut side down.
Over them sprinkle a lot of finely chopped garlic, some olive oil, a bit of toasted sesame oil, grated fresh ginger, a splash of soy sauce and a shallow amount of good chicken stock.
Cover and roast in a 400 degree oven for about a half hour, uncovering for the last five to ten minutes. (Save any remaining stock/juices)
(I saw a somewhat similar recipe that called for a handful of roasted cashews to sprinkle on at the end. I think I'll try that next time.)
