Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 12 inches piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 5 heads baby bok choy, bottoms trimmed, outer leaves discarded, separated into leaves and thoroughly washed
  • 13 cup sweet chili sauce
  • salt and pepper


  1. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add oil, garlic and ginger. Cook until fragrant but not brown, about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add bok choy leaves and cook until leaves are wilted but stems are still crunchy, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add sweet chili sauce, stir and let cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, tossing to coat all leaves. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately and spoon leftover sauce in pan over bok choy.
