MMMMMMM-Heaven in a bowl for lunch

This is soooo good. I have it for lunch instead of a salad and I love it:

4 heads BABY bok choy, including the green tops
1/2 can drained, rinsed chick peas (garbanzo beans)
fresh grated ginger to taste-start with 1/2 tsp.
4 cloves fresh garlic
1/2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
s+p
a little oil for pan

Wash bok choy well and chop into bite-sized pieces. Dry off with paper towel. Heat pan on High heat-you want a very hot pan. Cut garlic and grate ginger. Add a little oil to pan. Add ginger and garlic and let infuse for about a minute, stirring occasionally. Add bok choy and let sit for a minute. You will notice a little brown on it-that's ok. Turn flame down to med high. Then stir-fry until cooked through about 3 minutes or so. Add beans (if you don't like garbanzo, try a different kind of bean). Heat through. Add S+P and sesame seeds. Enjoy!!

I make a dish similar to this, but never thought about adding beans. Great idea. If you can't find baby greens, just use a larger head and slice thinly.

Thanks Rose. Honeybuns: Use 1 small head of regular bok choy (top & bottom) and, like Rose said, cut into smaller pieces. I've made it with regular and it is still good. I just really prefer the baby. I hope you try and enjoy this. It really is soooo good.
