About the Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons peanut or avocado oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste

  • 3/4 pound baby bok choy (about 2 medium heads), halved lengthwise

  • 1 cup coconut milk, stirred

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce (optional)

  • 1/4 cup matchstick-cut radish

  • 1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and chili paste and cook, stirring until fragrant; 1-2 minutes. Add bok choy halves, cut side down and cook for 1 minute more. 

  2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in coconut milk. Cover and cook, turning bok choy occasionally, until tender-crisp; 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat. Transfer bok choy to a serving plate. Stir in brown sugar, lime juice and fish sauce (if using). Pour sauce over bok choy and top with radish and carrots.
