Remember when you were young and your parents made you eat all your vegetables?
Well these days Momma would be so proud because, it’s no longer a chore to eat vegetables. My childhood memories were mostly peas and carrots… From a can! Maybe that’s why I couldn’t appreciate them much then? It’s not your fault Mom, you tried lol!
Now that I’m all grown up with kids of my own I have to be creative with my approach to preparing and cooking vegetables. I must admit it’s a lot of fun too! I live near a plethora of farms and just about any time I can roll up to a roadside farm stand and find all sorts of seasonal vegetables. This has aided greatly in my quest to make delicious vegetable dishes. When you think of vegans and vegetarians they must utilize creativity are it gets boring real quick. This vegetable recipe is far from boring!
The vegetables used in this dish is an eccentric bunch, more like a Motley Crew of vegetables. We have root vegetables your sweet potatoes and carrots, with a mix of Allium vegetables, which are the leeks hailing from the onion and garlic family. And beautiful Bok Choy that comes from the same family as the cabbage a worthy Motley Crew I might add. Might I also add that this dish is incredibly easy! you will not spend a whole lot of time over the stove, perfect for those of us that are on the go.
You will be enjoying this dish in a matter of 20 minutes Not to shabby! Prep your ingredients first for smooth sailing.
The Bok choy much like a cabbage compliments the flavor of the leeks by adding mildness to the earthy bite of the leeks and garlic.
The Sweet potatoes and carrots give it the texture with a hint of sweetness.
The spices combined with the subtle-ness of the oil seals the deal and the white wine vinegar elevates the vegetables from basic to bananas!
You can eat this alone or serve it over your favorite grain, I served mine over Farrow and it was wonderful. Or enjoy all by itself.
Now gather those ingredients and make this for dinner tonight to go along side of a main dish or if your vegan/vegetarian add it as your main course. The possibilities are endless my friends with this super easy and delightful meal. Vegetables are truly awesome!
