Simple sauteed Bok Choy is a fast and flavorful side dish for any dinner!


  • 2 lbs Bok Choy (One Large Bunch or Two Medium)
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce


  1. Trim the root end off of your bok choy and discard. Then fan the leaves open, rinse off any dirt and shake off excess water.
  2. Place the rinsed bok choy onto a cutting board. Line the bok choy up horizontally and with a sharp knife, starting with the white part and moving to the leafy green, chop into roughly 1-inch pieces.
  3. Heat a medium sized skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the sesame oil and allow to heat up for 30 seconds.
  4. When the oil is heated, add the white parts of the bok choy only! (This is key so that the greens do not wilt while the white part cooks!) Allow to cook for 1 minute.
  5. Next, add the rest of the boy choy, (the greens!) and cook for another 2 minutes. Then turn the heat down to medium low and add the garlic and soy sauce. Cook for an additional minute until the garlic just softens. Serve immediately.
