Daikon Soup

Fill a large pot with water.  Add sea salt and chopped onions and a few cloves minced garlic and bring to a boil.  Meanwhile clean daikon radishes and grate.  Add to boiling water and reduce heat.  Simmer covered at least 6 hours.  Chop radish leaves and add to soup during last 40 minutes.  Serve as it, or add browned hot sausage or ground beef.

Bok Choy with Garlic

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 tsp cornstarch

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 bunch bok choy, stems cut into 1 inch lengths, leafy tops left about 4 inches long

salt and freshly ground pepper

In a bowl, whisk stock with cornstarch.  In a large skillet, heat oil.  Add garlic and cook over high heat until fragrant, 20 seconds.  Add bok choy  and stir fry until the leaves start to wilt, 2 minutes.  Add the stock and cook, stirring until slightly thickened, 30 seconds.  Remove bok choy from the heat, season with salt and pepper and serve.
