A vegetable-packed variation on an Asian classic that you can make in minutes. Preparation tip: For a vegan version, substitute cubes of extra-firm tofu for the shrimp. Ingredient tip: Look for hot chili oil and black bean sauce in the Asian section of your natural market.

  1. Rinse shrimp well, shake dry, and place in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with black pepper and hot chili oil; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat olive oil and sauté onion for 2 minutes, until just tender. Add beans; toss to coat with oil and cook, tossing or stirring frequently, for 4 minutes. Add garlic, red bell pepper, and bok choy; cover and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
  3. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes, until shrimp are opaque and vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in black bean sauce and cook for 1 minute longer to blend flavors. Serve hot over noodles or brown rice.
