What is Bok Choy?

Bok Choy, a staple in Chinese cuisine, belongs to mustard family and has crunchy stem like celery and soft green leaves.

What is Miso?

Originated in Japan, miso is a fermented soybean paste that comes in a variety of flavors — sweet, salty, earthy – and also adds a savory flavor that is now identified as umami, our fifth taste sensation.

3 steps to make this Miso Glazed Bok Choy

Make Miso Glaze

In a small bowl, add the miso paste, maple syrup, tamari, rice vinegar, and sesame oil.

Prep and cook Bok Choy

Cut the baby bok choy in half lengthwise and wait for the pan and oil to heat up before placing them cut side down on a metal or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Sear each side for a few minutes and then brush the bok choy with the miso glaze last to avoid the maple syrup burning on your hot pan.


Cook both Sides

Flip to the other side and sear for another minute, then serve.
