For this Grilled Baby Bok Choy recipe, fresh baby bok choy gets grilled and drizzled with a super easy ginger chili sauce. Serve with grilled chicken or salmon. Easy and delicious!
Have I ever mentioned before to you that as a kid I was a picky eater? Like really really picky.
But when it came to Chinese food, I’d always eat my veggies. Bamboo shoots, broccoli and of course, bok choy (but a firm heck-no to the sliced carrots and pineapple). Perhaps I didn’t mind eating them because the vegetable flavor was masked by the fact they were drowning in a rich flavorful sauce, who knows? But I’ve loved bok choy since forever.
Grilling bok choy is an easy way to get it onto my plate with little time, effort and ingredients. Simply cut in half, brush with a little oil and grill for a few minutes until it’s leaves are crispy and slightly charred (you know how I feel about this – insert heart-eye emoji here) and the stalks are tender. Then I like to drizzle the grilled choy with an even easier sauce-dressing-thing. It’s 4 ingredients and it’s pretty darn amazing.
Baby bok choy, I love you.
In a small bowl measure 1 tablespoon sunflower oil, 1 tablespoon lo-sodium tamari, 1 tablespoon grated ginger and 1/2 teaspoon chili paste (sambal oelek).
Whisk to combine and scoot off to the side.
Rinse the baby bok choy off under the tap to clean away any dirt.
… and then cut them in half (length-wise).
Brush with remaining sunflower oil…
And season with freshly ground black pepper.
I preheated half of my grill to medium-high heat and the other half to medium-low. Once preheated I placed the choy, cut-side down on the hottest side of my grill and grilled the bok choy for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Flip and repeat.
I then transferred them to the cooler part of the grill and continued to cook them until tender (with the grill’s lid closed), about 3 to 4 minutes depending.
Use tongs to remove the grilled bok choy to a platter and spoon the ginger chili sauce over top.
It’s really that easy.
Not only is this grilled baby bok choy a quick and simple side dish, but it’s darn tasty and healthy too. That ginger chili sauce is SO good- and a smidgen spicy- that I may have used my finger to swipe the bowl clean. I am not ashamed.
