  • 8 heads baby bok choy or about 1.5 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon broth or water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil roasted
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil canola oil or peanut oil.
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger peeled and minced or grated (about a teaspoon)
  • ¼ Chili flakes


  • Sesame seeds for garnishing


  • Rinse the bok choy under cold running water. Remove any large outer leaves and using a paring knife slice off the tough ends. Wash to remove any dirt between the leaves. Transfer to a colander to drain.
  • Cut the bok choy in half lengthwise. If you have very large bok choy, you can cut it into quarters lengthwise. Very small bok choy can be left whole.
  • In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce, water or broth, sugar and sesame oil.
  • In a large wok or skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook stirring constantly for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add the baby bok choy and stir to coat with the oil mixture. Add the soy sauce mixture and stir to combine.
  • Cover the wok or skillet and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for about 1 - 2 minutes or until the bok choy is tender and a bit wilted. Uncover and cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in the chili flakes (if using).
  • Remove from the heat. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with sesame seeds.
