Ginger Garlic Bok Choy Ingredients

Quick Guide and Preparation Instructions
I prefer slicing the baby Bok Choy in half. If the base looks too tough, cut it off. Rinse it under cold water, and pat dry before sautéing. I often notice some sand stuck at the base so please wash thoroughly.
We are using baby Bok Choy for this stir fry. They are smaller in size and tend to be more sweet than regular (big) Bok Choy. If you get big or regular Bok Choy, cut them into small pieces so they are easy to sauté.
Let’s talk about the ginger garlic sauce ! Only 4 simple ingredients but this unassuming sauce will make your taste buds dance ! It’s a flavor bomb without being HOT. It’s zesty, tart, hint of sweet, pungent, salty – all at once awakening all the senses. And it fills the house with the wonderful aroma.

Ginger Garlic Bok Choy StirFry Steps

I like to shred the ginger and garlic to make this sauce. It cooks within seconds so you have to be very watchful once you start cooking. There is hardly any preparation to make this quick side dish. So have things ready to go before you heat the skillet. Everything happens superfast !!

Also, I am NOT including salt in the list of ingredient. I have never required to add salt in this recipe. The liquid coconut amino has a salty flavor note to it which is enough to enhance the overall taste without added salt. If you prefer saltier taste, feel free to add it. If the liquid coconut amino feels too strong and tart, sprinkle bit of brown sugar to neutralize the taste.
If you prefer to make things oil free, simply skip using the oil and sauté in the water instead. You can swap Bok choy for any vegetable stir-fry you like, using the same recipe! You can also combine the vegetables like snow peas, mushrooms and green onions to make a mixed vegetables stir fry.

Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

An easy and quick Chinese stir fry recipe with ginger garlic bok choy. Vegan, Glutenfree, Soyfree, WFPB


  • 6 Baby Bok choy
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut amino
  • 2-3 dry Red Chili Peppers
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


Cut each baby Bok Choy in half. Rinse under cold water and pat dry. Using a grater, grate the ginger and garlic. You can also finely chop them.

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with 1 ½ tbsp. oil. When hot, add garlic and ginger, dry chilies and stir-fry for 20-25 seconds or until fragrant. Add coconut amino in the skillet. Carefully scrap the bottom of the skillet in case any ginger garlic is stuck at bottom. ( it's called de-glazing the pan) You should sense the insane aroma of these aromatics.

Add Bok Choy face down. Let it coat the sizzling mixture. Cover and let it cook for 1-2 minutes. Flip them over. Again let it coat remaining spice mixture. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Bok choy should look darker green. Turn off the heat.

Transfer the Bok choy to serving bowl. Make sure to scrap off every last drip of that ginger garlic sauce. ( it's that finger licking good !!!) Season with toasted sesame seeds. Serve hot.
