Steamed Asian Greens with Sesame-Honey Dressing


  • 1 1/2 pounds Asian greens (tatsoi, bak choi, cabbage)
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, plus more for garnish

Pour about 1-inch of water into a wok or pan and bring it to a boil over high heat. Put the greens into a steamer* and cover. Put the steamer into the wok or pan and steam the vegetables for about 5 minutes or until they are just tender. Meanwhile make the dressing by combining thesoy sauce, vinegar, honey, oil, and 1 teaspoon sesame seeds in a small bowl. Put the cooked greens onto a serving platter, drizzle the dressing over them, and toss well to coat. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

*Note – if you don’t own a steamer, you can cook the greens directly in a small amount of water until they are wilted and tender. Keep the heat low and do not overcook.
