There are some days where I have a main for my meal, but nothing to pair it with and others when I have a side dish, but nothing to act as the star of the show. If you are struggling with the former issue, then I have the solution for you. Actually, your main might want to watch out because this might just steal the spotlight 😉
Baby Bok Choy Drizzled with Ume Vinaigrette (adapted from The Kind Diet)
2 small heads bok choy
1 Tbsp ume plum vinegar
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
fresh ground black pepper
toasted sesame seeds
1. Sauté bok choy in 1 Tbsp olive oil just until tender and it starts to wilt. About 5-7 minutes. You can also steam the bok choy if you want.
2. Transfer the cooked bok choy to a serving dish.
3. Mix the oil and vinegar in a small bowl and drizzle over the bok choy.
4. Season with salt, pepper, and toasted sesame seeds to your liking.
This side dish will pair greatly with pretty much any meal. It’s also great if your main dish takes a lot of preparation and you want a fast and easy side!
