Chilled Sesame Pak Choi

Tamara Stimpson

A simple and healthy side dish perfect for summertime!



3 cups pak choi, roughly chopped

4 green onions, sliced

1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons mirin or rice wine vinegar

1 pinch sugar

2 tbsp dark sesame oil

2 tbsp sesame seeds


  • Steam or boil pak choi to desired doneness (we like ours to still be a bit firm).
  • Drain choi in a colander and use a wooden spoon to push the choi against the sides of the colander and squeeze out as much water as possible.
  • Once choi is as dry as possible, whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and green onions in a glass or ceramic bowl. Add choi and toss to coat.
  • Allow to chill in the fridge for one hour.
  • Just before serving, add the sesame oil and sesame seeds and toss to coat. Enjoy!
