Bok choy is one of my husband’s favorite veggies so we make it all the time. Garlic Bok Choy is one of my go-to healthy side dishes. It’s so simple that I didn’t think it needed a recipe. However, I was talking with friends and bok choy isn’t as common a side dish as I would have thought. I wanted to give a simple and delicious recipe for bok choy newbies.

This recipe is packed with garlic. If you’re not a garlic fan, you’re welcome to reduce the amount slightly. However, the garlic is what gives most of the flavor so I highly recommend leaving it as is.

If you’ve never had bok choy before, it can sometimes be bitter and the garlic will mask some of the bitterness. To avoid some of the bitterness, I always get baby bok choy. The greens parts of the bok choy taste a little like spinach but the white parts are water dense so they can actually be somewhat juicy.

Even my son has gotten in on the bok choy action. I took some and pureed it for him to try. He’s almost 9 months now so he’s had some seasonings but this is a garlic packed dish so I wasn’t sure how he’d handle it. I combined it with some tamer foods like applesauce and oatmeal and he loved it. Well, I don’t know if he actually loved it or not. He didn’t gag or spit it out so I’m counting it as a win! I can’t believe he’s old enough to eat the same food we’re eating. He’s still getting a bottle but in the next few months he will be done with bottles forever. I sound like a broken record sometimes but I can’t believe he’s getting so big. Where did my baby go?
