READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by merron-iru kami

A zippy Asian side dish that just happens to be vegan. Also great with mung bean sprouts, green beans or broccoli. Time includes 1 hour to chill.

This was a very nice fresh dish. Wonderful cold, you could really taste the Bok Choi through the marinade. We found it needed a little salt to balance out the soy and bring up the sweetness. All around it has an nice flavor balance. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam or boil pak choi to desired doneness (we like ours to still be a bit firm).
  2. Drain choi in a colander and use a wooden spoon to push the choi against the sides of the colander and squeeze out as much water as possible.
  3. Once choi is as dry as possible, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and green onions in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add choi and toss to coat.
  4. Allow to chill in the fridge for one hour.
  5. Just before serving, add the sesame oil and sesame seeds and toss to coat. Enjoy!
