Oops. Yes, I am aware that it is Tuesday, not Monday. But I came into the game late, so I am just now going to post my recipe.
Lately, I have not been eating so great. For some this might mean not having a balanced dinner, or too many carbs during the day. But for me, it means stuff like Mike and Ikes for breakfast(tropical flavor) and a Costco hot dog for lunch.
Yes, Ang, I too have the dreaded Costco addiction. But I embrace it.
So I am aware of my need to restore my healthier eating habits.
Something I came across not too long ago is bok choy. I love it, and you have to admit it even sounds healthy. I am thrilled with it because it adds another veggie to my lackluster repertoire and it tastes good! Who knew?
It is great with grilled chicken or salmon, or as the side for an Indian curry or a stir-fry.
Maybe if I eat enough of it, the bok choy's healthy goodness will cancel out the sugary,tooth decaying Mike and Ikes breakfast.
Braised Bok Choy
2 cups chicken broth
6 T butter (or less, if you want)
1 1/2 lbs bok choy, chopped into 2-3 inch pieces
1 t Asian sesame oil
salt/pepper to taste
Bring butter and broth to a boil in a large, deep skillet. Place bok choy in the skillet and simmer, covered, until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer bok choy with tongs to a serving dish and keep warm. Boil broth mixture until reduced to about 1/2 cup, then stir in sesame oil and seasoning to taste. Pour mixture over bok choy and serve.
