  • 3

    tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

    teaspoons mirin

    teaspoon cornstarch

    baby bok choy (about 1 1/2 pounds), halved lengthwise, washed and large leaves removed

Directions

Combine 1/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce, the mirin, ginger, sugar and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir together remaining tablespoon soy sauce and cornstarch, then stir into saucepan. Cook for 3 minutes over medium heat or until thickened.
