  6. Tip:
  7. For 1 cup bok choy you'll need about 3 leafy stalks. Trim 1 inch from the base of each stalk and then halve it lengthwise. Chop resulting strips crosswise into 1 inch lengths. You'll have bite sized pieces, roughly 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch. If bok choy leaves are very large, cut them lengthwise into 3 or 4 pieces, rather than in half.
