Sesame-Garlic Baby Bok Choy

Baby bok choy is such a blank canvas! It has a pretty mild, almost cabbage-like flavor, with a hint of sweetness and bitterness. Baby bok choy is also more tender than regular bok choy! My favorite way to serve it is with simple Asian flavors: sesame, lots of garlic, and a bit of a kick from hot pepper flakes. It’s awesome.

The Ingredients

1-pound baby bok choy

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon water

Hot pepper flakes, to taste

Salt, to taste

Sesame seeds (regular, black, or both), to garnish

 

 

 

The Steps

Wash bok choy well. They can be quite sandy/dirty! If baby bok choy are on the larger side, you can slice them in half lengthwise.

In a large skillet with a top, add slivered garlic, olive oil, sesame oil, water, and hot pepper flakes and salt to taste. Add baby bok choy in a single layer if possible. Cover skillet and let steam on medium-high heat for 9-12 minutes until fork tender, gently flipping halfway through for even cooking.

Serve bok choy and slivered garlic pieces with a slotted spoon to drain off extra liquid. Garnish with sesame seeds.
