Serves 4 (serving size: 2 bok choy halves)

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.

How to Make It

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle sugar evenly over cut sides of bok choy. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add bok choy to pan, cut side down; cover and cook 2 minutes or until browned. Turn bok choy over; add 3 tablespoons water to pan. Cover and cook 2 minutes or until bok choy is crisp-tender. Sprinkle evenly with salt.

Quick, easy, delicious.  My "baby" bok choy was a little bigger than usual so I adjust the cooking time accordingly - 3 minutes to sear, 5-6 minutes to steam.  Really tasting with our salmon tonight.
