Serves 2 as a side


  • 300g baby bok choi, cleaned and cut in half lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (or maple syrup)

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Place bok choi on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and a few grinds of pepper.
