Tamari Lemon Bok Choy

Eat your greens is what mama always told me.  So many times we get caught up cooking the same green vegetables for dinner: green beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts, spinach, lettuce….

Take your game up a notch and saute beautiful baby bok choy with some lemon, tamari, and toasted sesame oil for a tasty, fast, & easy recipe.  Top it with Aleppo crushed red pepper (the crushed red pepper from pizza hut also works just fine :).  Aleppo is oilier, more flavorful, and sweeter than regular crushed red pepper.  Aleppo pepper is named after the city of Aleppo in Northern Syria, that is currently under constant war, sigh….
