Bok choy stew


This is a great all-in-one recipe! An easy dish that you can make in a big pot and that can satisfy everyone. This dish is also very versatile and it can be changed with any other ingredients that you prefer. I first threw this recipe together and hectic Friday night after returning home with the kids and was limited to the food in my fridge (some that needed to be saved) and it turned out great.

Since then, it has been a one-pot wonder that changes based on ingredients on hand. Feel free to add chicken or beef cubes for those days you wish to add meat or keep it vegetarian or vegan with plant-based options of protein like lentils, kidney beans or chickpeas (or all 3). Truly there are no limits to how you change this recipe and make it your own.
