On the Tender Charms of Grilled Baby Bok Choy
If I find baby bok choy the sexiest of the Chinese cabbages, does that make me a pervert? (A vegevert, perhaps?)
How about a vegbian?
|Who will think of the children?|
So let's say, similarly enamored with the delicate charms of baby bok, you sliced your heads lengthwise and dressed them in salt, pepper, olive oil and garlic. Indeed, this combination of seasoning appears to be delicious on everything grilled.
Grill face up, then face down until nice char marks appear. I have little luck with specific time and temperature recommendations for grilled goods; there are just too many variables. I went with medium direct heat while I was grilling other items and this probably took me 10 minutes tops. Test with a fork or a knive in the base; we're going for crisp-tender here, not mushy.
Though the burnt leaves make for a dramatic presentation, I might suggest you slice the top third off before you grill. Serve these little leaves sauteed with more garlic with this dish or save for a stir fry later.
And it's all perfectly natural.
