Low FODMAP  Sweet and Salty Grilled Bok Choy + Cucumber Salad

Serves 4


¼ cup (50mL) Niulife Organic Naked Coconut Amino Sauce 
¼ cup (55g) tahini
2 tablespoons of toasted sesame oil
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup avocado oil or olive oil

1 tsp coconut oil
6 heads bok choy, sliced and washed
1 tablespoon of Niulife Organic Naked Coconut Amino Sauce
2 cucumbers, chopped
2 carrots, spiralised
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, black or white
½ cup coriander, chopped
3 spring onions, green parts only, finely sliced


1. Prepare the dressing by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl or jar and whisking continuously until you get a smooth homogeneous mixture. It may seem like it’s not coming together but it will.
2. Place the cucumbers, carrot, sesame seeds, coriander and spring onion in a large bowl. Pour in half the dressing and toss to coat. Set aside.
3. Heat a skillet over a high heat and add the coconut oil. Add in the bok choy and stir fry for about 30 seconds. Pour over the coconut aminos and continue to stir fry for another 30-60 seconds. Serve the bok choy on a large platter.
4. Spoon over the tossed salad mixture and drizzle over some extra dressing. Top with extra sesame seeds to serve.
