What is Bok Choy?

Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage. It comes in a large variety. However, you can also find baby bok choy which are much smaller. Bok choy has a mild cabbage flavor and a crunchy texture. I really love using baby bok choy in this recipe because it cooks a lot faster.

How to Make Garlic Ginger Bok Choy

Making this bok choy recipe couldn’t be much simpler. You’ll quickly sauté the garlic in coconut oil to release its aroma. Then, you’ll add the bok choy, ginger, and coconut aminos. Coconut aminos are a gluten-free and soy-free alternative to soy sauce made from coconut sap. Finally, you’ll complete the dish by lightly steaming the bok choy until it’s soft but still has a little bite to it.
