Grilled Baby Bok Choy

Bok choy on the grill is so good, flavorful and interesting…and best of all quick, which makes it the perfect candidate for a weeknight dinner side. Of all the Asian ingredients I keep in the fridge, miso paste might be my favorite. I love it’s unami punch and versatility.

I love bok choy on the grill, it’s just like grilled romaine, unexpectedly good in a way you never anticipated. I know it sounds crazy, but bok choy is actually very kid-friendly. You don’t need to do much for these ingredients, just toss them with a bit of butter or oil, and seasoning and hit the grill. Happy cooking!
Ingredients
  • 3 tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 3 tbsp Canola oil
  • 3 tbsp Miso paste, white
  • 1 lb Baby bok choy not trimmed (see note)
Instructions
  1. In you have a grill basket – preheat grill to medium. If you do not have a grill basket, spray the grill with canola spray before preheating.
  2. Melt butter, canola oil and miso paste in a small bowl in the microwave.
  3. In a large bowl toss bok choy with miso butter mixture.
  4. Transfer to the grill, and cook, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes.
  5. The leaves should be slightly crisp and the bulbs tender. When eating you can discard the bok choy bulbs.
Notes
Bok choy – I like to cook the bok choy without trimming the stalks – it’s easier to grill if everything is intact.
