I really enjoy the taste and texture of Baby Bok Choy. This recipe takes the very best of the vegetable and adds a satisfying savory, spicy, with some subliminal sweet undertones.
Baby Bok Choy is a great source of Vitamins A, C, and K plus is extremely low in calories and only contains a tiny amount of fat. The texture and taste of the green leaves are similar to spinach and the stalks are similar to celery.
It is good raw but much better cooked. Baby Bok Choy is a staple in Chinese cuisine.
You can also try to grill the prepared Baby Bok Choy on the grill. It was raining today in Southern California so I opted for the oven! To cut calories and fat, eliminate the vegan feta.
Zucchini is the star in this casserole with summer squash, potatoes, onions, and tomatoes in supporting roles. If you are not a fan of tomatoes, it is ok to omit them from the recipe. Also, if you do not particularly like summer squash, just replace it with more zucchini.
This recipe feeds 4-6 as a side dish and 2-4 as a main dish. I like to have it alongside a fresh green salad and some crunchy bread. It also makes a great filling for tortilla shells!
It also stores well in refrigerator, after baking, for about 3 days.
This New York Times recipe popped into my inbox a few days ago and I was excited to give it a try. I went to pick up some dumpling wrappers at Whole Foods and unfortunately, they only had eggroll wrappers. Being a fan of Bob Ross, I subscribe to the saying that “We don’t make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents!”
I followed the recipe for the “dumplings” but was not happy with the filling. It tasted bland and spicey. So, I decided to make some adjustments and the outcome was spectacular.
I’ve included a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to wrap the pockets. First, cut the squares into two triangles. Add a small amount of filling and fold over like shown in the pictures. Please use water and lightly coat the edges to make sure every side is sealed.
This does take a bit of time but makes enough to pop in the freezer for a quick, weeknight meal alongside a salad.
