  • 2 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 4 heads baby bok choy separated
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable canola or coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic 4 cloves
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth

  1. Toast the sesame seeds over low heat until light golden brown.
  2. Warm vegetable oil (canola or coconut oil) in a large sautee pan over low-medium heat, add the garlic and chili flakes and cook until just fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  3. Add the bok choy and try to coat all the leaves with the garlic and oil. Turn up to medium and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the broth and stir for 3-5 minutes or until the broth evaporates/ cooks into the bok choy.
  5. Remove from heat and toss with the sesame seeds and sesame oil. Start with less sesame oil and adjust to your taste.
