A sprinkle of sugar and a thorough sear give the bok choy a beautifully caramelized crust. A little water steams the veggie to the perfect crisp-tender texture.

Serves 4 (serving size: 2 bok choy halves)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 teaspoon sugar
4 heads baby bok choy, halved lengthwise
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
3 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle sugar evenly over cut sides of bok choy. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat.
