From all of the cooking methods we tried when cooking bok choy, our favorite is Healthy Sauté. We think that it provides the greatest flavor.
Healthy Sauté—similar to Quick Steaming and Quick Boiling, our other recommended cooking methods—follows three basic cooking guidelines that are generally associated in food science research with improved nutrient retention.
These three guidelines are:
(1) minimal necessary heat exposure;
(2) minimal necessary cooking duration;
(3) minimal necessary food surface contact with cooking liquid.
