Bok Choy Gratin

I had a bunch of baby bok choy in my fridge that needed to get used before making its way to the trash can.  I grew up in a household that didn’t believe in wasting food and it pains me to throw food out.  I would rather create a disaster
meal then throw food away.  This is how I created this dish and it actually turned out quite tasty. 

INGREDIENTS

1 Sliced Yellow Onion

1 Diced Tomato

10 Chopped Garlic Cloves

8 Ounces Unsalted Butter

6 Small Bunches Baby Bok Choy

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preheat your oven to 350° F.  Tear off the bok choy leaves, wash & dry them.  In a large skillet melt the butter over a medium low heat.  When the butter is melted add the garlic and onions.  Stir and cook for 1 minute.  Add the tomatoes and bok choy leaves. Season with the salt and pepper.  Stir and cook for 2 minutes.  Remove from the heat and pour into a large glass baking dish.  In a small bowl mix together the panko bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the vegetables. Place, uncovered into the oven and bake for 35 minutes until done.  Remove from the oven and serve hot.  Serves 4

Very nice. I might make one change though politely speaking. I am not a Garlic fan really. I would probably shred fresh ginger???

Glen, I'm not a fan of garlic either. I'd try cutting the quantity of garlic in half and adding a little ginger

Glen, I don't like garlic either. Speaking of food, any insight into the "Gelato and Ice Cream diferences" question?

If one is not a garlic fan then cut down the amount that the recipe calls for or replace it. You certainly could use fresh ginger instead for this recipe. In other recipes you can replace garlic with chopped shallots or just leave the garlic out all together.

Morning all. Kenneth: Gelato is italian ice cream...I THINK..not sure. Not sure if it is made w/real cream or not. I only eat real ice cream as I will worry about cholesteral and being healthy when I am 80 MAYBE...if I am still around. Yea, maybe ONE SMALL clove garlic. But, I do Love the idea of Ginger.
