Spicy Garlic Grilled Baby Bok Choy

If you can't find baby bok choy, standard bok choy will do. Just look for greens that are joined at the base by the stalk and have lots of tightly packed leaves to hold the spicy garlic dressing.

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total:25 Minutes


  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Asian chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 4 heads baby bok choy (about 1 lb. total), halved lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted cashews


1. Heat grill to medium (350° to 450°). Combine soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, oil, vinegar, sugar, and garlic in a small bowl. Set bok choy in a rimmed baking dish and brush with two-thirds of soy-garlic mixture. Wrap bok choy tops with foil.
