    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. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, combine the black bean-chile sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, tahini, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    2 Cook the vegetables

    In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced bok choy and chopped garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Wipe out the pan.
