Bok Choy with Miso Dressing

BY : PUBLISHED : May 5th, 2014 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

I can eat cous cous like there’s no tomorrow but if you’re not a fan you can use pasta or quinoa and just don’t add raisins. I just kinda peeked around the kitchen to see what I had and threw this together really quick and it turned out great well! Miso paste can be a tad pricey but the tub I have has lasted me like a year since only a little is ever called for at a time. I’m using brown miso.

Bok Choy with Miso Dressing

Bok choy is a great Chinese vegetable to use. I love the strong flavor of miso on this base veggie.
