Bok Choy with Sweet Red Chili Sauce

This dressing could be used on any grilled or roasted vegetable, on grilled fish and chicken and even pork! I think this bok choy is a great accompaniment to any grilled protein, rice or soba noodles.

To make the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons sweet red chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon sriracha or gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste) optional, for additional heat

For the bok choy:

  • 1 pound baby bok choy rinsed, cut into quarters, with core intact
  • olive oil extra virgin
  • salt and pepper
  • green onions diced fine for garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. For the dressing: Using a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients until combined. Taste and adjust according to your taste if needed. Set aside.
  • Prep two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Lay down the bok choy in an even layer and lightly drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake in the oven for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until desired doneness. I find that 20 minutes gives you nice, crisp edges. Alternatively, you can grill: using a medium-hot fire in a charcoal or gas grill: Arrange the bok choy, cut side down, on the grill grate. (If you have a grill screen or tray, set it on top of the grate before adding the bok choy, to keep the stalks from falling through the gaps.) Close the lid and grill for about 5 minutes, until golden brown on the underside. Flip the bok choy with tongs, close the grill again, and grill for about 5 to 6 minutes more, until golden and crisp-tender.
  • To plate: arrange the cooked bok choy on a platter and lightly drizzle with the sweet red chili sauce mixture. Garnish with diced green onions. Enjoy immediately.
