Method: 

Arrange a steamer basket in a large pot. Add enough water just to reach bottom of basket. Bring to a boil. Add bok choy. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and steam about 10 minutes or until bok choy is tender. Prepare an ice bath by filling a bowl with ice cubes and water; set aside. Place steamed bok choy in ice bath, drain well.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, bring 1/2 cup water to a simmer. Add mushrooms. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook about 6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender, stirring once halfway through cooking.

In a large bowl, whisk together orange juice, tahini, tamari and ginger. Add bok choy, mushrooms, and carrots and toss to coat. Garnish with sesame seeds.
