Do we give dad a day off from the grill on Father’s Day, or do we celebrate him by letting him grill his favorite steaks, just the way he likes them, with no interference?

You decide, but I also suggest you honor his grill skill by taking over the spitfire for a couple of minutes to grill something you probably haven’t grilled before — bok choy.

Grilled Bok Choy on Shockingly DeliciousBok choy is not only among the most nutrient-dense vegetables on the planet, it is also among the most delicious when simply grilled. You need add nothing else, unless you want to gild this lily.

Happy Father’s Day!

Recipe: Grilled Bok Choy

Summary: Grilling tames bok choy’s crunch and concentrates its natural sweetness, for a perfect grilled vegetable.


  • 1 head full-size bok choy


  1. Heat your barbecue grill to medium heat. Grill bok choy halves about 5 minutes each side (a little more if they still seem too crunchy to you).
  2. Remove and serve!
  3. Serves 4.

Quick notes

  • You may drizzle with oil if you like before you grill, but it isn’t necessary.
  • You may also drizzle with soy sauce or teriyaki sauce or some other seasoning sauce after grilling, but it isn’t necessary. The pure, naturally sweet flavor of the bok choy will shine through if you allow it to be naked!
