Almond & Garlic Bok Choy Stir-Fry
Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
Almonds, Bok choy, garlic, blender

This delightful Chinese-inspired dish combines the nutty flavor of almonds with the crisp freshness of bok choy, all brought together by the aromatic essence of garlic. Perfect for a quick, healthy meal that can be enjoyed by the whole family.


  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 1 lb of bok choy (approximately 4-5 heads)
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Rinse the bok choy thoroughly under cold water to remove any dirt. Cut off the ends and separate the leaves. If the leaves are large, you can chop them into manageable pieces.
  2. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.
  3. Using a blender, pulse the almonds until they are coarsely chopped. Be careful not to over-blend; you want small pieces, not almond flour.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the bok choy and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes, until the leaves are wilted and the stalks are tender but still crisp. Remove the bok choy from the wok and set aside.
  6. In the same wok, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  7. Add the chopped almonds and stir-fry for about 2-3 minutes, until they are golden brown and fragrant. Be careful not to burn them.
  8. Add the chopped garlic to the wok and stir-fry for about 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  9. Return the bok choy to the wok and toss to combine with the almonds and garlic.
  10. Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce (if using), and sesame oil. Stir well to coat all the ingredients.
  11. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  12. Transfer the stir-fry to a serving dish.
  13. Garnish with a few whole almonds for an extra crunch, if desired.
  14. Serve hot, either on its own or with a side of steamed rice.

This Almond & Garlic Bok Choy Stir-Fry is a perfect blend of textures and flavors, making it a delicious and nutritious addition to your meal repertoire. Enjoy this quick and easy dish with family and friends!
