Grilled Pac Choi & Turnips over Rice with Sesame Soy Sauce


2-3 heads Mei Qing pac choi, sliced in half lengthwise
1 bunch Niseki turnips, sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds (reserve greens for another use)
1 cup cooked shelled edamame
2 cups cooked rice
2-3 scallions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

3 1/2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  1. Heat the grill to medium. Rinse the pac choi under cold water to remove any dirt. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Taste test and adjust seasonings if need be.
  3. Lightly brush the pac choi and turnips with a little bit of the sauce. Place the pac choi cut side down on the grill; cover and cook until tender. About 3-5 minutes. Place the turnips directly on the grill and cook, covered for 2 minutes per side.
  4. Serve the grilled veggies with the cooked rice, edamame, scallions and a few tablespoons of sesame seeds. Drizzle with remaining sauce and enjoy.
