Fiery Baby Bok Choy Recipe

Last night, we were looking for something different for our vegetable side dish and we came across this amazingly simple dish from Williams-Sonoma.

Baby boy choy is packed with vitamins and nutrients and is ridiculously low in calories…in fact 1 cup of bok choy has only 9 calories. Winter is the best time of year for this cruciferous vegetable, so right now it’s also very inexpensive. (I bought a pound and it cost only $0.98!)

We were a bit concerned that the recipe was going to be a bit too spicy for the kids (who can be really picky about that) so we toned it down slightly by omitting the chili oil in order to head off any dinnertime arguments. The dish still packed some heat, but the only complaint we had was that there wasn’t more of it!

The ingredients are few, the flavor large, and it’s mindblowingly fast.

Check out the recipe over on Williams-Sonoma and let us know what you think!

Quick Recipe -Asian Sesame Veggie Slaw

I just whipped up an awesome slaw for lunch and I wanted to share it – it’s super easy and so healthy my body didn’t know quite what to do with it. Here are the ingredients:

  • 2 parts cabbage (green or napa) shredded
  • 1 part carrots grated
  • 1 part celery thinly sliced on an angle
  • 1/2 part red onion very thinly sliced
  • 2-3 TBL Feast from the East Asian Sesame Salad Dressing or other favorite Sesame Vinaigrette
  • salt and pepper to taste (none needed really)

Combine in a bowl – toss with dressing – serve

This one is great with grilled meats, sandwiches, etc.
