  • 1 pound bok choy
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian sesame oil


  • Wash and trim the bok choy leaves. Cut each leaf in half, separating the tougher stems from the leafy greens. Place stems first into a microwave safe bowl. Place leafy greens on top.
  • Cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Mix well, season with salt and cooking oil. Mix again. Microwave 1 minute increments until done (you can give the bok choy a good mix after each minute).
  • When done, drizzle with Asian sesame oil.
