Did you know that ginger is one of the healthiest foods on our beautiful planet? Add it to your meals or drinks as much as possible! Bok choy is also an incredible inflammation fighter and an excellent source of quercetin, a compound that freezes cancer cells. ONKOTEA® Serenity Ginger Tea pairs nicely with this meal. This ginger bok choy is easy to make, soothing, and overflowing with cancer-fighting ingredients—it doesn’t get much better than this!


  • 1 pound baby bok choy
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Asian garlic chili sauce
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Stevia to taste 


  • Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and add stevia as wanted for taste
  • Rinse Bok Choy thoroughly with cold water, rinsing in-between leaves as much as possible, pat dry with a kitchen towel or paper towel 
  • Cut each Bok Choy in half lengthwise 
  • Heat avocado or coconut oil in a large saucepan, add the Bok Choy cut side down to the pan
  • Allow to sit in the pan, without stirring, until the bottoms begin to brown- about 3 minutes
  • Flip Bok Choy in the pan with the stalk side down and continue to allow to cook until the stalks begin to soften (the leaves will also begin to wilt)- about 2 additional minutes
  • Transfer Bok Choy to a plate
  • Lower heat to a medium-low and add sauce to the pan, simmer for about 1 minute until sauce begins to thicken
  • Add Bok Choy back into the pan with the sauce and stir gently to coat Bok Choy with the sauce, allow to cook for 30 seconds or so until the Bok Choy is well coated with the sauce
  • Transfer to a plate and garnish with sesame seeds as desired, enjoy!
  • Thank you for this great recipe. It really is delicious and nutritious. However, I made a few small changes to make it lower in oxalates, which are a problem for me. The sesame seeds are high in oxalates so they had to go. So did the chilli sauce and pepper flakes, so instead I used white pepper. I used half the amount of ginger and garlic. It tasted wonderful. I grow bok choy in my garden and just cut the amount I need for each meal and the plant just goes on giving.

      • Food, medicine, herbs, fruit and flowers from the garden, all organic. I do permaculture and the food just grows and grows, the birds and bees love it and pests are few.

  • WOW , this makes my salivaglands “rejoice” ;-)..
