Roasted Baby Bok Choy with Soy-Ginger Glaze


Ginger adds flavor and balance to the soy-honey glaze that complements tender-crisp baby bok choy. Sambal oelek, a ground chile paste, adds the slightest amount of spice. Feel free to add more if you want to turn up the heat.

  • 1 pound baby bok choy (about 4 medium heads), trimmed and halved lengthwise

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  2. Meanwhile, whisk soy sauce, honey, vinegar, ginger and sambal oelek together in a small bowl.

  3. Transfer the bok choy to a serving platter and drizzle with the soy-honey glaze. Serve hot.

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.)
