  1. Add vegetable oil and sesame oil to a wok over medium-high heat.  Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the red pepper, onions, and garlic, stirring constantly.
  2. When the onions are translucent and turning golden, add the bok choy and red pepper. Continue to stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the soy sauce. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the greens have turned dark green.
  3. Add the water.  Cook for another 1-2 minutes or until most of the water has evaporated. Serve immediately with a source of protein, such as our delicious tempeh.
