This is one of my favorite, simple sides to accompany an Asian meal like our Chinese Steamed Fish with Ginger-Garlic Sauce or Delectable Sweet and Sour Tofu.

Servings 4 servings


  • 1 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/2 lb. bok choy stems and leaves, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce or use any variety, use wheat/gluten-free, if needed
  • 1 Tbsp. rice wine or use mirin
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper or use crushed red pepper flakes


  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat.
  • When it is hot, add the garlic and sauté it for 30 seconds - 1 minute until it is fragrant.
  • Add the bok choy stems and sauté them for about 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, honey, and pepper.
  • Add the bok choy leaves and the sauce to the pan, stir to combine, and cover and steam it for 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Uncover the pan and continue to sauté the bok choy for another 2 – 3 minutes until it is tender and the sauce has thickened a bit. Serve it immediately or refrigerate it for up to 3 days.
