If you have stackable bamboo or metal steamer baskets, try cooking some sweet green bok choy along with your main course. Here's how: Cut baby bok choy lengthwise in half (if using regular bok choy, cut into 1-in.-wide pieces), then put in a heat-resistant glass pie pan and set pan in steamer basket over boiling water. Steam 6 to 8 minutes or until tender when pierced with a knife. Turn off heat and lift pie pan from steamer. Drizzle bok choy with 2 tbsp. oyster sauce mixed with 1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil if you like, and serve immediately.
