So, I went to the fridge and cupboard looking for inspiration. And I found it. Sometimes I go a little crazy in the produce section at Kroger's and that is a good thing. A very yummy thing. My dinner tonight was comprised of Pearl Couscous, Bok Choy, Broccollini, and Garlic Bread. So good.
This was my first time cooking bok choy so I had to look up a few methods. Sauteing sounded like the best. I quickly cleaned and cut the pieces, got my oil heated (with a little salt and dill) and cooked for about 8 minutes. It was pretty good. It has a bit of a strong flavor, especially in the greens and I really liked it. I'm going to work with this again.
Next was the broccollini. I love this stuff. Its so cute. I've always been a fan of broccoli and this is a cousin. For this dish I lightly basted the spears with olive oil, salted and oven roasted for about 15 minutes. Really good and has a nice crisp texture this way.
Finally the couscous. I've been a fan of 'traditional' couscous for years and a few months ago starting making the pearl version. Cooking is a bit more than the little stuff but worth it. I added a little butter, mustard and garlic salt. Very nice and not too heavy.
All in all a yummy meal and definitely one I would say leans heavy toward my vegetarianism with vegan tendencies. I hope you enjoy the photos. Goodnight!!
