5 minute stir-fried garlicky bok choy
A quick, easy and budget friendly recipe that is ready in 5 minutes. The soil is getting warmer as the season shifts from Winter to Spring and some of the leafy greens growing beautifully in our backyard edible garden are starting to bolt or send flower stalks. So I harvested two bok choy and stir fried them with chopped garlic and a sprinkle of Himalayan pink salt. Crunchy and delicious!
Bavarian sausage salad with lettuce from the backyard garden
A few steps away from our kitchen is our raised boxes where I picked different varieties of lettuce which I used on our wurstsalat or Bavarian sausage salad for dinner with tomatoes, cucumber and eggs. A pinch of French coarse salt and a drizzle of vinegar from the German deli. And there goes our colorful salad. I also steamed Frankfurter and Nürnberger bratwurst and baked some garlic bread.
Steamed Purple Bok Choy and Black Cod
Crunchy and nutritious, PURPLE BOK CHOY are very easy to grow. They thrive well in our growing zone, here in Los Angeles, from early Autumn until late Spring. They will bolt or send flower stalks once the soil gets warm. Purple-colored vegetables are rich in anti-oxidant. On this video, I steamed a bunch of purple bok choy from our backyard garden. The dipping sauce is an equal proportion of soy sauce and rice wine vinegar.
A heathy and flavorful soup with garden vegetables
A slab of salmon turned into soup with some freshly picked vegetables from the backyard garden - kale, tomatoes, lemon verbena and peppers. To make it flavorful I added two packets of bonito-flavored seasoning from the Japanese market and then squeezed the juice of a few calamansi or calamondin. Healthy and easy to prepare - a perfect lunch on a busy workday.
