1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the celery on an angle.

In a separate bowl, combine the black bean sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of water.

2 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan, heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the prepared bok choy and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm.
