Turkey, Boccoli & Bok Choy (from Step By Step Cook’s Encyclopedia)

Yes, I can make stir-fry without a recipe, but I am one of those that add a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I don’t really measure so I would not be able to adequately tell you how much of each ingredient to add.  Notice the peculiar white strips in the photo, that is regular bok choy cut into strips, I could not find baby bok choy but this will work too.  For a nutty flavor dark sesame oil may be used and for a bit of flare sprinkle the dish with some toasted sesame seed.
