Garlic Ginger Bok Choy

Keeping up with my challenge to “try something new”, I came home with bok choy {and a few other new items}. And my little family fell in love with it.

Garlic Ginger Bok Choy | Enjoying this Journey...

I found that it is like most greens and needs little cooking time. The vibrant green color is ideal, but the firmer white ends can go a little longer so I added those first.

This recipe is simple, but delicious. I first served it with Paleo Asian Style Burgers {found here}. Bugsy was furiously signing for more in his highchair and Luv asked for more, too! That’s a sure sign we’ll be buying bok choy more frequently.

Since I originally posted this recipe I’ve made it several times. It goes nicely alongside a gorgeous plate of sashimi, too. I think this is a great option for those on the elimination stage of the autoimmune protocol especially. Pick up your favorite sashimi (I love yellow tail, salmon, tuna, and octopus), bring it home, and whip this side dish up. Sashimi is one of my favorite indulgences. 🙂

This simple side dish is a great way to introduce someone to the deliciousness that is bok choy! Serve alongside my Paleo Asian-Style Burgers.
  • 1 large bunch of organic bok choy {or 3-4 bunches organic baby bok choy}, cut into 2" sections separate whites from leafy ends
  • 1 TB organic coconut oil
  • 1-inch length of organic ginger, grated or diced fine
  • 2 organic garlic cloves, pressed or minced
  • Himalayan sea salt

  1. Heat a skillet with coconut oil over medium heat. Add the firm white pieces of bok choy and sauté 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the green pieces, ginger, garlic, and season with sea salt. Continue sautéing until the garlic is fragrant and the bok choy is vibrant in color. Remove from heat and serve immediately with coconut aminos on the table as an optional addition.

    I LOVE your grocery list. I’ve done that before, and it’s so fun experiencing a new fruit or veggie. I haven’t bought bok choy in too long. Thanks for the inspiration.

      I haven’t made this recipe in a while! Last I looked our local grocery stores didn’t have bok choy though. :/ I should have grabbed some at Whole Foods to bring back home {I snagged some purple Japanese sweets while I was there last}. Ha!
