Check it out!


  • 3 heads of Baby Bok Choy
  • 2 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  • Cut the bottom bulb of each head of Baby Bok Choy off so that all the leaves are loose and give a rinse and drain.
  • In a medium sauce pan, heat the sesame oil and red pepper flakes on medium-high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the Baby Bok Choy leaves to the pan and reduce to medium-low heat. Toss the leaves around in the pan with kitchen tongs so that the oil and pepper flakes get a decent coating on the leaves. Cover the pan and cook for about 8 minutes, tossing the leaves occasionally. The stems will be tender and the leaves will be soft and slightly charred.
  • Sprinkle on the salt and toss the Baby Bok Choy around to distribute the salt. Serve hot and enjoy!!
