6 Weeks of Wellness, Week 6: Power Bowl Demo
So, here we are, officially my last food demo for this 6 Weeks of Wellness set. Hope you guys found something helpful :) I tried my best to pick tasty, nutritious and easy to make recipes for you all. I had some great encouragement a long the way (thank you!) and a whole whack of garden veggies to come so I will try my best to keep these little demos coming weekly. If you have something special in mind please feel free to message me anytime :)
So for today's recipe, an oldie but goldie and showcasing one of my all time favorite green veggies, bok choy! Here I make a delicious Asian Choy salad and plate with some organic tempeh (LOOOVE Green Cuisine's tempeh! ) and a little quinoa, you can also sub for some brown basmati if you prefer.
Hope you give it a go, its zesty, refreshing and delicious!
Take care and talk soon!
Asian Choy Salad (For a Power Bowl)
4 large Choy leaves sliced, or 6-8 small ones
4 celery stalks sliced
2 cups grated carrots
1 bunch of green onions
Fresh chopped parsley and sesame seeds for garnish.
*Optional, add organic edamame (GMO free) or sauteed organic tofu or tempeh for protein. Turns this simple salad into a great little meal.
Best to make a large jar ahead of time to allow the oil to soak up the garlic/ginger flavors. Still delicious fresh if you can't manage to make it in advance.
1/2 extra virgin olive oil
1/4 organic tamari
1/2 organic lemon juice
4 cloves grated or slivered fresh garlic
1-2 tbsp grated fresh organic ginger root
This dressing is amazing, great for rice, salads etc.
Add dressing to your salad and serve. This would be a great potluck dish as well. Veggies are firm and it will keep its crispiness for a long while. Enjoy!
