  • 1 tablespoon refined coconut oil
  • 6 baby bok choy (2 lb), halved lengthwise


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce (or use a gluten-free alternative and add salt as needed)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon konjac flour, or 1 teaspoon cornstarch


  • Heat a large, wide saucepan over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes. Add half the oil and brush to coat.
  • Add half of the bok choy, cut sides down. Cook 3-4 minutes, until browned. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining oil and bok choy.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the sauce ingredients, except for the konjac flour.
  • Return the bok choy to the pan. Pour in the sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook about 10 minutes, until bok choy is just tender.
  • Remove the bok choy to a serving platter. Mix the konjac flour with 2 tablesooons cold water, and stir the mixture into the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until the liquids turn into a thick sauce, 3-5 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the bok choy and serve.
