Before, you tell me how clever, I am and pat me on the back........ Before you throw out all those praises for my creation....... Before there are accolades for this special dish and before you run to emulate me, I must share that this was all unintentional and just seemed to happen. Happenstance! Easy also......
Tomato season can be overwhelming and it seems that a new past time is cooking tomatoes for sauces, soups and sides.
When you have bok choy, in the house, it gets paired with tomatoes as does almost everything. Bok Choy hails from China and you will find it in stir fries, soups and main dishes. It is a healthy vegetable with lots of Vitamins and few calories. It is from the cabbage family but it doesn't have the strong taste of the green cabbage, we use. The stalk is very much like celery but I like it better than celery.
Tonight, after some checking, I decided to cook it in soup with garlic. This is one of the easy recipes that is rewarding. Basically, you cook the garlic in olive oil for a minute, add soup and bok choy. Cook for another 6 - 8 minutes until soups disappears. Plop it on a tomato slice or half a tomato and serve. You could heat the tomato for a minute if you would like.
Garlicky Bok Choy on Tomato
1 baby bok choy
1 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 cup organic vegetable broth
1 tomato slice
pepper to taste
In a small skillet, melt margarine.
While it is cooking, dice bok choy and slice tomato.
Add garlic to margarine and cook for 1 minute. Add bok choy and cook for another 6-8 minutes until soup is absorbed.
Put tomato slice on a plate. Cover with bok choy mixture. Add pepper, if you choose.
I wonder if this could be used as an appetizer. Maybe with a little feta or some sliced mushrooms.......
Eat and enjoy.
