The refrigerator light goes on...

Bok choy is perfect for grilling. You can do this outside on the barbecue or even in the oven. It is one of those super simple dishes and goes with almost anything.

When cutting the bok choy lengthwise it's best to slightly pull apart the leaves in the middle to separate the halves, insert the tip of the knife and then slice at the white part of the bok choy - sort of like slicing leeks lengthwise.

Grilled Bok Choy, an easy side dish recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Slice the bok choy lengthwise in half.

Mix together the hoisin, soy sauce, and maple syrup until smooth.

Heat a griddle over high heat.

When hot, add the sesame oil and then the bok choy, cut side down.

Cook for about two minutes. Adjust the heat so the bok choy does not burn but does brown.

Turn the bok choy over and coat with the sauce.

Cook for one minute and then turn the cut side down.

Turn one more time and cook for one more minute before serving.
