BOK CHOY WITH FLAKED ALMONDS AND TOASTED SESAME SEED OIL


A mineral rich start to the New Year, 2018! How special to start the year by sharing a super simple and nutritious recipe! Asian greens are a rich source of calcium, and nuts and seeds are also renowned to be rich in minerals. This Asian style combo is a great side to cooked Salmon or fish cakes.

Ingredients:

  • Bok Choy (or Pak Choy) - as many bunches as you like

  • 1 clove fresh garlic, minced (optional)

  • Olive oil and 1/2 cup water

  • 1/3 cup flaked almonds Toasted

  • Sesame seed oil

Method:

Wash the Bok Choy to rinse off any sand and soil. Slice the leaves lengthwise in half then set aside. Heat a wok or frying pan with the olive oil and once hot, place the minced garlic and the washed and sliced Bok Choy in the pan tossing briefly. In 1-2 minutes add the 1/2 cup water to the pan and cover with a lid. This braises the Asian greens (like a half steam). Allow the greens to soften for about 4-5 minutes, but do not let them get mushy. Once they are softened remove them off the heat and place in a serving dish, sprinkle with Almond flakes and toasted sesame oil ready to serve up. Toasted Sesame oil really makes the difference in flavour compared to the non-toasted one, but because sesame seed oil is high in omega 6's you don't want to consume this too often (keep it as an occasional enjoyment).
