Serves 4 with leftovers

Bok choy can be very gritty, so clean the bundles carefully. Halve each one lengthwise and lay the greens, cut-side down, in a large bowl of water. The sand will drop to the bottom, forming a little beach. Lift the greens out of the water and set face down on paper towels to drain.

2 pounds baby bok choy (10 to 12 individual bundles), halved lengthwise
Soy sauce (for sprinkling)

1. In a large wok or skillet, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Set bok choy in, cut sides down. Cover with a lid. Lower heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes or until bok choy is bright green but still crunchy.

2. Transfer to a shallow bowl and sprinkle with soy sauce. (Set aside 4 pieces of bok choy for the ramen.)
