Grilled Bok Choy


16 ounces Bok choy (about 4 4-ounce baby bok choy)
4 tsp. Hoisin sauce (or gluten-free hoisin sauce)
2 tsp. Low sodium soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari sauce
1/2 tsp. Five Spice Powder
2 tsp.. Maple syrup
2 tsp. Sesame oil


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.
