You wouldn’t know this, but Bok Choy is Brooke’s favourite green vegetable. She doesn’t care how it comes; in a dish, by itself, any way she can have it. I brought this dish to her place once when she was having us for dinner and it is now her favourite way to have it.
Bok Choy with Honey Soy Dressing
2 x Bunches of Bok Choy (Or I really like to do 1 of Bok Choy and 1 of Broccolini)
For the Dressing:
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon Sweet Dark Soy (Ketcap Manis)
1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seeds
Cut the Bok Choy into bite size chunks. In a medium saucepan some salted water to the boil. Always put salt in the water for green vegetables as this will help retain the bright green colour.
While you are waiting for the water to boil, combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and on a small dry pan, toast your sesame seeds. The seeds only take a minute and need to be watched as they have a high oil content that can burn very easily.
Now you are ready to quickly cook your Bok Choy. It only takes 40 seconds in rapidly boiling water. Then drain well and toss with the dressing. Top with toasted sesame seeds.
I ate this delicious snack while writing this blog! Alternatively it would be great served with pan fried chicken thighs with Sri Racha sauce….ooo I’m really hungry now, Im going to go make dinner!
