This is a nice, easy to whip up veg side, something a bit different to boiled carrots! Pak choi has a unique flavour, a little bit nutty, a little bit sweet and it’s extremely versatile. Time to give it a go if you’ve never tried it before!
Pak Choi takes no time to prepare, so it’s perfect to dish up as a side for a Sunday dinner, or for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I always love having a wide choice of sides on the dinner table for guests to pick at, to add more interest and variety to a table – you really can not have enough side dishes in my opinion!

A quick and simple side dish
- 2 pak choi sliced in half lengthways
- 50 g salted butter
- veg oil
- half a red chilli finely chopped
- 1 Clove garlic finely chopped
In a large frying pan, add the butter and a splash of oil. Put it on a medium high heat. When butter has melted add in the chilli and garlic.
Once butter is foaming, add the pak choi, flat side down in the pan. Spoon over juices. After about 4 mins, once you have some good colour, turn the halves over and cook for a couple of minutes.
