Spicy Bok Choy with Noodles and Peanuts


spicy bok choy

Wilted bok choy and peanuts fill a flavorful, savory broth alongside chewy noodles for a hearty one-dish meal. Look for fresh rice noodles in the pasta or Asian food section of most grocery stores. This recipe comes to us from Sharon Palmer, The Plant-Powered Dietitian.

Serves 4

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy ginger dressing
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 (12 ounces) package fresh rice noodles
  • 6 (6-ounce) heads baby bok choy
  • 1/4 cup peanuts

Place the oils in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes, or until the vegetables soften and become fragrant.

Add the peanut butter, dressing, soy sauce, orange juice, red pepper flakes and 1-1/2 cups water to the skillet. Stir until bubbly and smooth. Cover and cook while you prepare the noodles.

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat and cook the rice noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with water.

Transfer the cooked noodles to the skillet and stir to combine. Add the bok choy and peanuts to the pan and let cook for 1 minute, or until the bok choy is slightly wilted. Enjoy!
