Sesame Grilled Baby Bok Choy

This beautiful Sesame Grilled Baby Bok Choy is a more dainty member of the cabbage family that when cooked has a subtly sweet flavor and is best served simply. Lightly grilling these small, delicate bundles brings out a world of flavor and adds color and crunch to the meal.

  • Griddle Pan or Grill


  • 4 Bundles Baby Bok Choy
  • 1 Tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Sesame Oil
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • ¼ Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Sesame Seeds


  • Wash Baby Bok Choy by filling a large bowl with ice water and setting the bundles in the water for 10 minutes. This lets all of the dirt come out from in between the leaves. Remove any damaged leaves from the out side, then cut bundles in half long ways exposing the tender leaves inside.
  • Heat the grill or griddle pan on medium/high heat. When the griddle pan is hot drizzle 1 Tsp (a very small drizzle) over the pan. then place the Baby Bok Choy on the pan insides down.
  • Cook for 3 minutes then turn Baby Bok Choy over. Cook for 3 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Once the Baby Bok Choy are almost finished cooking on the second side, drizzle on sesame oil and finish by sprinkling sesame seeds over the top. Remove from the pan and serve.
