    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; keeping them separate, thinly slice the stems and roughly chop the leaves. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). In a separate bowl, combine the cumin-Sichuan sauce, soy glaze, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of water. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
