Food Love: Quinoa and Baby Bok Choy

Tonights dinner........
Quinoa and Baby Bok Choy

Not really a recipe as much as a meal suggestion because there is not much too it. 
[sidenote: baby bok choy is voted worlds cutest veggie when raw, in my book]


Baby bok choy
Balsamic Vinaigrette

Cook your Quinoa on the stove! There should be directions on your package but if not it would be one part Quinoa 2 parts water. I usually throw in 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let cook until all the water is absorbed. Simple :)

Then steam your baby bok choy. I use this to steam all my yummy veggies. They are super cheap and so easy. You just set  it inside your pot and fill the bottom with water. Throw in your veggies and cover to steam.
As for the BBB, it usually only takes mine a few minutes but wait until the leaves start to wilt a bit and then poke the stalk with a fork. If it goes in easy its done.

Place your amazing looking food on a plate. Drizzle with the vinaigrette or dressing of choice and enjoy :)

Quinoa is on of my favorite things in the world. Its so simple to cook, tastes amazing, and it is so very good for you. Full of protein and lots of other goodies. You can eat it plain or throw some other veggies on top!

Recently Ive been eating quinoa and steamed Kale for breakfast after reading this book. I thought that was a little strange at first, but hey we eat breakfast for dinner right? I love it, its a simple morning meal filled with stuff thats good for me :)

I guess my whole point of this post was to tell you how amazing quinoa is and that you should probably go get some. I know you can get it at a whole foods, trader joes, and meijer around Chicago but if you can't find it by you google it. :)

Let me know if anyone tries it or if you are as obsessed with it as I am ;)


  1. That looks so good! Wish my husband would eat stuff like that--more for me, I guess!

  2. I love quinoa!! It's so expensive, though - I haven't had it in a year :( Baby bok choy is definitely the cutest vegetable - I love its crunchy texture!

  3. Amy- My husband won't eat the bok choy either, so yes more for us! ;)

    Sara- I dislike the price! I was going to look online to see if they sell it bulk for cheap but no luck yet.

  4. wow, looking very yummy! :)
