This seared baby bok choy is a compliment to any asian dinner, but can easily stand alone with a side of steamed rice or on top of some rice noodles.



  • 6 Baby Bok Choy sliced in half lengthwise
  • 1 T Olive Oil
  • Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 C Dry Roasted Peanuts chopped
  • 1/4 C Cilantro chopped

Thai Peanut Sauce

  • 2 T Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 2 T Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce or Tamari
  • 2 T Water
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 1" Ginger Root minced
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 T Sriracha


  1. Whisk all of the Thai Peanut Sauce ingredients together and set aside for the flavors to meld.

  2. In a large non-stick saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.  Sear the bok choy, cut side down until they are starting to brown.  Flip them over for just 1 minute.  You want to keep them very al dente.

  3. Season the cooked bok choy lightly with salt and pepper.

  4. Place 3 pieces of the bok choy on each plate.  Drizzle with the sauce and sprinkle with the peanuts and cilantro.
