Baby Bok Choy with Cashews
Very Good 4.2/5
(6 ratings)

Sometimes the simplest things are the most enjoyable. This dish is very high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and has good amounts of copper and magnesium! Warning: The cashews contribute nearly half the calories.

Almonds or peanuts would work too and ff you want you could jazz it up a bit with a little freshly grated ginger and a shake of chili pepper flakes.

A lighter accompaniment to Turkey. All the flavors of Thanksgiving without swimming butter and sugar.
