  • 1.50 lb Bok Choy halved



  • Slice your bok choy in half if it’s about 6-7 inches long. If it’s baby bok choy you may skip this step.
  • Wash in-between the leaves of your bok choy for hidden dirt.
  • In a bowl, combine sauce ingredients and set aside.
  • Fill your wok or pot halfway with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Once it’s boiling, lower your bok choy and blanch until the leaves turn vibrant green, about 30-45 seconds. Strain immediately.
  • Lay the bok choy on a serving plate and set aside.
  • In the same wok or pot, wipe it dry. Set over medium heat. Once hot, pour sauce in and allow this to simmer until sauce thickens and reduces.
  • Once thick, pour sauce over greens. Enjoy!
