Once water is boiling, stir rice, edamame and stock powder into medium pot.Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, separate bok choy leaves, then rinse away any hidden dirt. Pat dry with paper towels. Cut bok choy into 1/2-inch pieces, keeping leaves and stems separate.Whisk together brown sugar, 1 tsp (2 tsp) cornstarch, soy sauce, half the garlic puree and 1/2 cup (1 cup) water in a small bowl.

Once rice is finished cooking, fluff rice with a fork. Set aside. Return the same pan to medium-high (from step 3). Add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then bok choy stems.
