Baby Bok Choy with Azuki Beans and Peanut Butter Sauce

Baby Bok Choy with Azuki Beans and Peanut Butter Sauce

Ohhhhh.... did anyone say satay? Bringing you the recipe for Baby Bok Choy with Azuki Beans and Peanut Butter Sauce. 

Hi there! And welcome. If you are new to my website, a mighty big welcome. If you are a regular loving 'foodie,' happy to have you back my friend! 

Recently I have been focusing on recipes that fill a need. Not only the need for great tasting food, but other needs such as dishes that are known favourites in the world, dishes that are harder to get a vegan recipe for, or recipes that are brand new to the vegan world. This time around, I have brought you a revised favourite. 

Satay is a commonly loved dish, but most recipes you will find include meat or a non-vegan friendly element. But I have been able to bring you an Asian inspired dish with the perfect amount of flavour and nutritional balance. And of course, satay goodness!

So settle in and continue reading for everything you need to know.

To make this recipe, you will need 5 ingredients and 65 minutes. This recipe is going to take a little longer to make (like most great things), so set aside a good space of time to do this one. 

Our ingredients may be small in numbers, but large in nutritional value. One of the main stars of this meal is the baby bok choy. Bok choy is known for its insane number of healthy attributes, including vitamins K, A, and C, as well as magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium. 

The other notable star player, equally as important, is the adzuki beans. Adzuki beans are rich in protein, folate, fibre, magnesium, iron, and so much more. A great natural source of protein for all fellow plant-base food lovers.

This recipe is the perfect lunch and/or dinner because it is: 

  • Packed full of essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Super dooper healthy! 
  • A great source of protein - 15g per serve! 
  • Low in calories - only 273 per serving. 
  • Easy to make.

I would not recommend storing this meal for later. It is best served freshly cooked and may go soggy if you keep it in the fridge. However, you may wish to make extra beans and store those if you plan on having this meal for the next day as well. There is no problem with that. Simply boil up your beans, and place them in an airtight container for up to 24-48 hours. This also works well if you are going to be tight on time when making this meal. Prepare the beans in the morning and pop them in the fridge to use that night! 

And there you have it. Enjoy! Be sure to share your creation with us, we love seeing others enjoying this wonderful lifestyle of the vegan way.
