While recovering from my recent surgery, I had a stronger than usual desire for healthy dishes. This is because I’ve been unable to get to the gym every day, as I usually do. Here’s something of mine I’m sure you’ll enjoy if you feel like eating in a healthy way, no matter how you’re feeling. One of my favorite pasta dishes, Quinoa Pasta with Baby Bok Choy and Sweet Red Onion is light, healthy, and takes very little time to make.
I sautéed the red onion, baby bok choy, and garlic in red wine (I used Malbec). Once the wine reduced and the vegetables soaked up the flavor, I added a dollop of unsalted butter and then tossed the cooked quinoa into the pan to coat the noodles with the savory sauce. This dish is topped with fresh sliced cherry tomatoes Yum!
