Roasted baby bok choy

This dish is quick and easy and a great side to any summer dinner.

Bok Choy is an Asian vegetable that is a member of the cabbage family (and can also be found under the names pak choi, bok choi, or pak choy). It has a crisp texture and a somewhat spicy taste. I try and find baby bok choy as it’s delicious when roasted in the oven.

You can also grill them on a BBQ next to your favorite cut of meat.

Nutritionally speaking, bok choy is a great source of antioxidants, full of the vitamins A, C & K.

You’ll Need:

  • 3-4 heads of baby bok choy (2 regular-sized)
  • sharp knife and cutting board
  • 2 TBS cooking fat (ghee, coconut oil, or butter)
  • sea salt
  • olive oil when removed from the oven
  • optional: coconut aminos, tamari, etc.


  • Pre-heat oven to 230C/450F
  • Cut the bok choy in half (if regular-sized then quarter)
  • drizzle in cooking fat
  • roast for 10 minutes cut side down
  • turn over and roast for 5 minutes more
  • the leaves should look crispy.
  • the stalks will be al-dente
  • drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt and serve immediately.

Optional additions: as stated above you can drizzle with coconut aminos or tamari for a bit of spice.
