Many times when I shoot food for the blog, I go the extra mile (maybe even 10 more extra miles) to label, package, and present the food..sometimes the recipes are complicated and I have an image I want to produce so I go out of my way to get the exact image I want..BUT most of the time (on a day to day basis) I eat very simple things. Really not sitting around eating truffles and caviar all day if that is what you are thinking.
For dinner I like a hearty, warm salad without the carbs. I usually saute chinese cabbage tips (bok choy), even though I am not Chinese this is like, my favorite vegetable- this and snow pea leaves..which are also common in Chinese cuisine…. So much better than Spinach in my opinion. I also serve this with some grilled chicken in my marinade (longer it sits the better). Everyone has their special ‘marinade’ right? For chicken at least…
For the cabbage I start off with hot olive oil and garlic…then I add the raw cabbage right away.
Salt the veggies, and add any sauces you like. I like it without anything, just olive oil and garlic.
There will be some amazing broth from the veggies as they wilt in the wok, add that too.
Chicken should be very juicy, I like to use a combination of white and dark meat…white meat is fine but all the flavor is in the dark meat…and dark meat is juicier.
More soon! Thanks for reading.
