Quick Bok Choy & Mushrooms

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

2 servings

Quick Bok Choy & Mushrooms


  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 6 medium mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • 4 Baby Bok Choy (approximately 2 oz each), cut in half
  • 1 tbsp mushroom soy sauce OR any variety that you like
  • 1 tsp sesame oil


  1. Wash and cut, ginger, mushrooms and bok choy.
  2. Heat large skillet or wok, on medium-high heat.
  3. Add coconut oil, to skillet or wok.
  4. Saute ginger & garlic for about 1 minute, stirring to keep from browning too rapidly.
  5. Add mushrooms. Stirring for about 3 minutes.
  6. Add Bok Choy. Cook for about 3 more minutes, depending on how firm you like your Bok Choy.
  7. Add soy sauce & stir for 1 minute.
  8. Turn off heat & add sesame oil. Tossing to make sure all vegetables are covered.
  9. Serve & enjoy!


You can lower the sodium by using the low sodium soy sauces.

If the ginger & garlic are browning too quickly take pan off of heat & remove ginger & garlic from pan. Add back at end of cooking. If it burns start over. Burnt garlic tastes terrible and will over-power your whole dish!

Use the oil that you have or prefer.

You can peel or not peel the ginger. Just make sure to wash it well.

Use any type of mushroom that you prefer or have on hand.

You can use standard size bok choy, just cut into smaller pieces.

(Disclaimer: Now the misses are subjective. My tastes are different from yours. Although there are no true misses in this post. These are just some of the locations that I visited. These are most of the other places, before my last travel post of the beautiful, Victoria BC.)

T&T Supermarket: Hit Coquitlam, Burnaby & Vancouver BC (I went a few times)   A huge Asian market, located around BC, Alberta and a few places in Ontario. I'm kind of in love with this place and the coconut buns. I'm not really a bread person but I could become one. Warning, it's always busy and crowded, so if that's not your thing, stay away.




I-Mart: Hit   Asian market, in Burnaby, BC

London Drugs: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. Similar to Shoppers Drug Mart in price, but with more house ware. I had to leave before I bought more then I intended to. Mostly expensive with good deals splattered around the store, if you look for them.

Diana Market: Hit Burnaby, BC   Small Middle Eastern market, where I found some great spices. I can see myself going back to restock when I'm in the area.


Hannam Supermarket: Hit   Another Asian market in, Burnaby, BC


Choice Markets: Hit   In Vancouver, BC. Great produce and selection. Comparable to Whole Foods but on a smaller scale. Pricier, not for bargain hunters/budget people. But I like to check out all options.

Save -on-Foods: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. Large store, great selection on organic, health foods. Can be pricey, but you can find good deals if you look around, plus they have a rewards program. Points are always good in my book!


GOGO PIZZA & PASTA HOUSE: Hit, takeout in Coquitlam, BC   2 pizzas for under $20. Great prices. The business looked clean. I did not get food poisoning. Great customer service. Pizza was very tasty. I had extra pepperoni, mushrooms, extra cheese. Good crust, nicely flavoured sauce. Able to change from regular crust to thin crust. A lot of combo deals available.  Check it out.

Burnaby GOGO Pizza & Pasta House 3

Belmont Bakery & Bistro: Hit   In New Westminster, BC. The apple pie I had tasted like homemade, it was so good. Not too sweet. Ample filling, with the apples still firm. Flaky, crispy, not-too-thick crust. I will be visiting them again if I get to go back to the area. (Which I have since. The pierogies are super tasty.

Yokoyaya: Hit  In Vancouver BC   Japanese dollar store, but like other dollar stores, very few items are just $1.


Old Navy: Hit   Clothing store, in Canada and the US. This one was in Surrey, BC

Bentley: Hit   Luggage and accessory store, in New Westminster, BC. Located across the country. Where i found the bottle protectors.

Bed Bath & Beyond: Hit   In Richmond, BC. Great deals occurring all of the time, if you're wiling to spend a little money. The store does smell good, if you're not overly sensitive to perfumes/scents.

Dollar Tree Stores Canada, Inc.: Hit   In Burnaby, BC. I love a great dollar store. You can find great prices and many of them have brand name items.

WalmartA reluctant Hit Burnaby, BC   I normally wouldn't do this but I have to give Walmart a shout out. I needed a last minute bag & lock and they were the only place open at 10 p.m on a Sunday night. Plus the customer service was great.
