Baby Bok Choy with Warm Miso Ginger Dressing

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 to 6

Crisp-tender baby bok choy in a rich, gingery sauce makes a tasty side for chicken or shrimp. Be sure to serve with plenty of rice to soak up the warm dressing.


  • 2-1/2 Tbs. peanut oil
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 Tbs. minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. white miso
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbs. rice vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. Sriracha
  • 1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
  • 2 lb. baby bok choy, quartered or halved lengthwise

  • Heat 1/2 Tbs. of the peanut oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Add the ginger and garlic, and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 30 seconds. Whisk in the mirin, miso, lime juice, vinegar, and Sriracha, and cook until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in the sesame oil, transfer to a heatproof bowl, and keep warm.
  • Wipe out the skillet. Heat the remaining 2 Tbs. peanut oil over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Add the bok choy, toss gently, and then cover and cook, turning occasionally, until crisp-tender and browned on some edges, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a platter, drizzle with the dressing, and serve.

    A lovely addition for all home cooks who like to educate themselves. The dressing will make many friends in the vegetable family

    A really great recipe. The dressing brightens the flavor of the slightly bitter bok choy. The dressing is also good on other vegetables (I've used it on steamed broccoli and cauliflower as well)

    A new family favorite. The sauce is actually good on a variety of vegetables, so I make extra. You can dial up the spices or not.
