  • 1 cup Chick Peas cooked with ground pimento powder
  • 5 cups Pak Choi shredded
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 large Onion minced
  • 4 sprigs Thyme fresh
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Salt


  • Use a steam basket to steam pak choi for 3 minutes (the 3 minutes begin once the water in the steam basket comes to a boil) . If you do not have a steam basket, then take a large pot and add 1/2 inch of water, then use aluminium foil to create 4 balls of even size and then rest a ceramic plate on the balls. Add the pak choi to this plate and cover the pot, then steam for 3 minutes after the water has come to a boil. Remove the pak choi from the steamer or the ceramic plate quickly to prevent overcooking.
  • Heat coconut oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and water and salt and stir to incorporate to release the flavours of the seasonings.
  • Add cooked chick peas and thyme to sauce pan until fully incorporated, then stir in steamed pak choi. Add pepper or other spices as desired.
  • Allow the flavours to be incorporated for 3 minutes, then remove from heat and serve.
