5-5-5 and Red Veggie Medley

Recipe: 5-5-5 and Red Veggie Medley


    You'll understand the "5-5-5 and red" them as soon as you read the ingredients. This is a perfect side dish for "Asian Pork Tenderloin with Simple Hoisin Sauce."

Serves 2. Can be doubled.


    5 clean stalks of bok choy, sliced crosswise into one-half inch slices, top to bottom
    5 spears of asparagus, cut into one-inch pieces (Don't use the woody ends. Throw them away.)
    5 green onions cut into quarter-inch dice, up until halfway up the green part
    1 red pepper, sliced into quarter-inch slices
    Olive oil spray
    2 Tbl soy sauce


    Take out a large sauté pan or wok. Spray the surface with olive oil spray. Put in your asparagus pieces and the red pepper slices. sauté on Medium-Low for 3 minutes or until al dente. Add the onions and the bok choy. Turn up to Medium and toss the whole mess around. You?re stir-frying. This will only take about one minute to get the bok choy wilted and the green onions cooked. Add the soy sauce and stir until just warmed. It's ready to serve and you should serve it immediately. Low cal and good for you too!
