Bokchoy is super boring to me so whenever the other half buys it, I try and make it a little bit more interesting.  Looking at my pantry of jars, I decided to open up a can of orange wedges infused in some rooibos tea syrup.  Stir fried the bok choy up with a little soy, chili flakes and garlic and threw in the orange pieces last minute.

The result was a sweet, spicy, tangy bok choy that was very unboring.
