I’ve got a tasty, Indian-inspired side dish to share with you today. You could serve this as a side on Thanksgiving, or anytime you want an anti-inflammatory veggie that tastes delicious.
If you’re not used to cooking with bok choy, don’t be intimidated. It’s easy to cook, with leaves that wilt like spinach and hearts that are tender in just a few minutes.
You can find bok choy in the Asian produce section of your grocery store. If you can’t find it, you could always substitute spinach or even a combination of spinach and leeks.
And keep in mind, this dish is versatile. If you don’t like Indian spices, just leave them out and season with sea salt and pepper. But I love the depth of flavor and hint of heat!
