  • 450 g (1 lb) bok choy - approximately 4 bok choy See Note 1
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil See Note 2
  • 2 tablespoon honey See Note 2
  • 2 tablespoon tamari soy sauce See Notes 2 and 3
  • 2 teaspoon white sesame seeds
  • red chilli - finely sliced, to garnish


  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C (390 F).
  • Line two trays with baking paper. 
  • Slice the bok choy in half and trim the base of the stem. Divide the bok choy between two trays, allowing space between each piece. (See Note 4.)
  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, honey and soy sauce.
  • Drizzle the bok choy with the sauce.
  • Place the trays in the oven and roast for 10-12 minutes, or until tender.
  • Place the bok choy in a serving dish, and carefully drizzle the hot sauce over the top from the baking trays.
  • Serve immediately with a garnish of sesame seeds and red chilli.


  1. I have used regular bok choy, but baby will work just fine - be sure to adjust the cooking time. (It may take as little as half the cooking time of regular bok choy)
  2. In Australia, the tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons. In many other countries, the tablespoon is 15 ml or 3 teaspoons. Please adjust your measurement if necessary.
  3. Ensure your tamari is gluten-free if required.  You can also use regular soy sauce if you do not require this recipe to be gluten-free.
  4. The two baking trays allow us to roast the bok choy evenly. Crowding the bok choy will cause them to steam.
