Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high.Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Quarter lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice, separating the stems and leaves. In a bowl, combine the sliced pepper, chopped garlic, and sliced bok choy stems. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), soy sauce, 1/4 cup of warm water, and as much of the curry paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.
