Roasted Bok Choy Is So Quick And Easy, You'll Want To Serve It Every Day
Bok choy is the tasty twist that your veggie routine needs. It has a similar nutrition profile to broccoli and cabbage but a very mild flavor and can be eaten raw or cooked.
Oven-roasted bok choy takes just a few minutes to transform into crispy leaves with a savory, juicy bulb. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees while you prepare it for cooking.
Because of its layered leaves, the vegetable can trap grit while growing, so cutting it in half through the bulb end helps to clean it well. Give it a good rinse and pat it dry.
Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with oil, salt, and pepper, and roast for up to 10 minutes in a preheated 400 Fahrenheit oven. Browned tips will indicate it's done.
Enhance the flavor of bok choy with sesame oil and soy sauce, add shiitake mushrooms to the roasting tray, or dust with parmesan near the end of the roast.
If roasting a larger head of bok choy, cut the base into quarters or even smaller to even out the cooking time so the tips don't burn before the stems can tenderize.
