Baby Bok Choy with Cashews

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2-3 servings 1x


This Baby Bok Choy w/ Cashews recipe is a little more exciting than your average salad, and includes sesame oil, ginger, garlic and toasted cashews.


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped green onions, including green ends
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 pound baby bok choy, rinsed, larger leaves separated from base, base trimmed but still present, holding the smaller leaves together
  • 1/2 tsp. dark sesame oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped, roasted, salted cashews


  1. Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium high heat. Add onions, garlic and ginger, stir together and cook for 1 minute. Then add bok choy. Sprinkle with sesame oil and a small pinch of salt. Cover, and let the baby bok choy cook down for approximately 3 minutes. (Like spinach, when cooked, the bok choy will wilt a bit.)
  2. Remove cover. Lower heat to low. Stir and let cook for a minute or two longer, until the bok choy is just cooked.
  3. Gently mix in cashews. Serve warm.
