Lemon Garlic Sauteed Bok Choy

We both like this recipe a lot.  The lemon and garlic really step up the flavor of the bok choy.  It’s a simple recipe that easy to do and it pairs easily with fish, chicken, or pork.

Servings 4


  • 1 lb Baby Bok Choy
  • 1.5 tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 pinch Crushed Red Pepper optional for spicy
  • Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Lemon cut into wedges


  • Remove any discolored outer stalks of the bok choy and discard them (or save for stock later). Place the bok choy into a colander and rinse with cool water, rubbing any grit or dirt away from between the leaves.
  • Trim the ends and slice each bok choy in half lengthwise. Or if they are large, cut them into quarters. Pat dry.
  • Add the oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes to a wide room temperature skillet. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the oil begins to bubble around the garlic, but before the garlic starts to turn light brown.
  • Toss in the bok choy and spread into one layer. Sprinkle with about a 1/4 teaspoon of salt then cook, without stirring, until the bottom is starting to turn brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Flip then cook another 2 minutes or until the green leaves have wilted and the white bottoms are beginning to soften, but still have some crunch.
  • Transfer the cooked bok choy to a platter, then squeeze 2 lemon wedges on top. A teaspoon of olive oil is nice too, Serve with more lemon wedges on the side,
