- pinch of red pepper flakes

- Combine cashews, vinegar, sugar, soy sace, ginger, red pepper flakes, and 2-4 TB water in a blender or food processor; puree until smooth. Set aside.
- Wash bok choy stems and leaves well, making sure to rinse away dirt in the ribs. Separate the bok choy leaves from the stalks. Cut stalks into 1-in pieces and roughly chop the leaves.
- Heat peanut oil in a large skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add bok choy stems and cook, stirring often, until crisp-tender, 2-3 minutes
