  • Clean the bok choy thoroughly. Dirt can get in the crevices, so it's best to submerge the bok choy in water for about 10 minutes. Then rinse.
  • Cut the bok choy in half, lengthwise.  
  • Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat and add the bok choy, flat parts down.  
  • Cook for about 2-3 minutes, until bottoms are golden brown and caramelized. Remove and set aside. .  
  • Add the garlic to the pan and cook about 30 seconds.
  • Place the bok choy back in the pan and add all the remaining ingredients. Mix together to evenly coat the bok choy then remove from heat and serve.
