This Air Fry Bok Choy is made with sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic powder and air fried to perfection.
A full head of bok choy is about a foot long – they’re huge! There are green parts and white parts. Bok choy will always be an awesome staple for Chinese cuisine. I ended up using baby bok choy since they are easier to fit in my air fryer, but you can use either.

Hint: I love using my Ninja Air Fryer for this recipe, as it makes the Bok Choy so crispy and the inside so juicy.
Bok Choy: I used baby bok choy since it is easier to fit in the air fryer, and I find it juicier in the core.
Sesame seeds: I love using sesame seeds for garnish, although everything but the bagel seasoning works wonders.
Garlic powder: If you do not have garlic powder, onion powder is always a good substitute.
Dipping Sauce: You can make any variation of the dipping sauce that you would like. If you aren't a fan of vinegar, feel free to skip it and use lime juice instead. As for the red pepper flakes, feel free to add more if you like the spice.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.
- Spicy - add chili pepper flakes while cooking to imbue heat into the dish.
- Deluxe - add in soup or serve with Potstickers.
- Kid friendly - add crushed wonton chips on top.
Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
