HOW TO ROAST BOK CHOY
Start off by preheating your oven.
Before eating you’ll want to thoroughly wash your bok choy. Wash between the leaves as well, give it a really good rinse to make sure all the dirt is removed.
After washing you can cut as desired. Since we’re roasting we like to just cut down the center lengthwise. We also trim the bottom.
Now that it’s fully prepped we’ll place it onto our baking sheet and cover with our ginger and garlic sauce.
Roast the bok choy until the bottoms are tender.
Serve on a plate and pour the remaining sauce from the sheet pan over the bok choy. You can also add a drizzle of sesame oil if desired.
HOW TO SERVE ROASTED BABY BOK CHOY
This goes really well with your favorite Asian or Chinese recipes, or you could simply serve as a side with your favorite meals. We like to serve with white rice and chickpea broccoli with garlic sauce.
HOW TO USE LEFTOVER GARLIC SAUCE
If you have any leftover sauce you can cook it and serve it over rice, pasta, or saute/roast up more veggies! You could also roast up some broccoli with the ginger garlic sauce and pair with some spaghetti cooked in the remaining sauce. Need to add more liquid? Add a little more liquid aminos/coconut aminos or finish with sesame oil.
