Grilled Baby Bok Choy with Soy-Lime Dressing

Baby bok choy cooks up fast compared to its mature counterpart, making it a great easy weeknight side. Drizzle with the dressing right when it comes off the grill so it soaks up the flavor.

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce (see Tip)

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or canola oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon chopped shallot

  • 4 medium heads baby bok choy (about 12 ounces)


  1. Preheat grill to medium high.

  2. Whisk tamari (or soy sauce), lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, honey and shallot in a small bowl.

  3. Cut bok choy in half lengthwise, keeping the root end intact. Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over the cut sides. Grill the bok choy, cut-side down, until charred in spots, about 2 minutes. Flip and continue grilling until tender-crisp, 1 to 2 minutes more. Whisk the dressing again and drizzle over the cut sides of the bok choy before serving.


People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing ingredients.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
