...Tastiness (CSA Style) - Grilled Bok Choy with Soy Ginger Sauce

Our box contained 3 large heads of bok choy (bok choi?).  I've only ever prepared bok choy by chopping it up and adding it to stir fry.  So I thought I'd try something a little different this time, and sticking with our preferred method of summer cooking, I prepped it and had B throw it on the grill.  This recipe was inspired by this recipe I found on Pinterest. pictures

You have to try it!!!!  I doubted, but am not a complete corn convert.
 Grilled Bok Choy with Soy Ginger Sauce

  • Bok Choy (We had 5 small heads)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil - plus more for the grill grates
  • 1 Tablespoon grated fresh peeled ginger
  • 3-4 Green Onions, whites and a little bit of greens, thinly sliced
  • 2-2 1/2 Tablespoons Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  1. Sauce can (and probably should) be made ahead of time so flavors can meld.  
  2. Whisk together ginger, onion, vinegar, soy sauce, and lime in a small bowl
  3. Heat clean grill to Medium Heat.  Once the grill is heated, generously oil the grates using olive oil so bok choy doesn't stick.  We like to fold over some paper towel and dip it in oil, then use it to "grease" the grates.
  4. Slice each head of bok choy in half.
  5. Combine Toasted Sesame Oil and Olive oil.  "Paint" bok choy with mixture generously.  
  6. Grill bok choy directly on medium heat for 4 minutes.  Turn.  Grill for another 3-4 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!


  1. Wow, I've never thought to have Bok Choy in any other way than in stir-fry. And what a veggie filled meal! Glad you're having fun getting creative with your CSA :)

  2. This looks awesome. I am so glad you posted this....all I ever do is steam bok choy, I was needing a new idea for it.

  3. Oooooh, and I just saw you tried he corn. Amazing....right?? Who knew?

    1. Because I always make 8 ears at a time (L never eats less than 1 1/2 herself! - Don't think about the diapers. They're the worst.), it usually takes about 10 minutes. But that's still WAY less than getting the giant pot down and boiling. LOVE this method!
