BBQ Vegetables - we tried Bok Choy on the Traeger Ranger
This vegetable is known by many names, Bok Choy, Pak Choi & Pok Choi - all the same thing. It has a bulbous base and loose leaves - really nice texture and takes on sauces and rubs very well.
First time we cut the Bok Choy in half and placed on a steel plate and applied a glaze of olive oil, sweet chilli sauce and lemon juice.
We placed in the Traeger Ranger at a pre-set temperature of 165 degC. for 5 minutes. The glaze had started to brown the underside of the Bok Choy, so we turned them over and placed back in the grill for a further 4 minutes.
Removed from the grill and they were ready to eat. The base of the leaves were still crunchy and the light chilli flavour was fantastic.
Second time, we used sesame oil in lieu of olive oil. After initial turning, we added roasted sesame seeds - same veg, but a substantially different flavour.
Both occasions we used the mild Traeger Apple Wood pellets
