Chinese food often gets a bad wrap because of the bad oils, MSG, high sodium and the fact that a lot of the favourite Chinese dishes are deep fried. If you really love Chinese food, there are a number of really easy recipes you can make at home and that really don’t take that much time.
I found this Sesame Bok Choy recipe to be another perfect recipe for a Meatless Mondays feature and since it’s so simple and easy to prepare there are no excuses when it comes to eating a healthier Chinese recipe!
You can serve this Sesame Bok Choy recipe with rice or noodles and if you want to go healthy, you can pair this off with brown rice!
