Stir Fried Wok Vegetables

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (optional)
3 serrano chile peppers, seeded and chopped (optional)
1/2 cup baby corn, cut in half
1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
2 pounds bok choy – stalks halved and cut into
1/4-inch sticks, leaves halved, separated
3 cups fresh bean sprouts
1/4 cup Asian fish sauce (nuoc mam or nam pla)
3 tablespoons Chinese oyster sauce
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves (optional)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Heat vegetable oil in a wok over high heat. When the oil is hot, stir in ginger and minced chiles; cook and stir until the ginger is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add baby corn, red pepper, and bok choy stalks; stir fry until the red pepper has begun to soften, about 3 minutes.

Stir in bok choy leaves and bean sprouts; cook until the leaves have darkened and wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in fish sauce and oyster sauce; sprinkle with green onions, and stir together. Serve sprinkled with chopped cilantro and toasted sesame seeds.
