Simple Bok Choy and Tuna Simmer

Simple Bok Choy and Tuna Simmer

This super-easy bok choy simmer is a standard in our home when I've got leftover bok choy to use up.

Ingredients: serves about 4

Bok choy
half a large one, or a full-sized small one (about 1kg)
Tuna (I recommend maguro)
1 small can (drained or not, your preference ♪)
2.5 to 3 tablespoons
Granulated Japanese style dashi (soup base)
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce


1. Wash and cut the bok choy.
2. Add all the flavoring ingredients except for soy sauce and the drained tuna in a pot, and boil over low to medium heat. Water will come out from the bok choy, so there's no need to add any.
3. Once it's come to a boil, add soy sauce. If you taste the stock and adjust the flavor to your liking, you're sure not to fail.
4. Boil on medium-low heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool to combine the flavors.
