One night, I made one of my go-to healthy weeknight spiralized meals. Then, I posted a picture on Instagram (obviously.) It got so many likes (515!) that I knew I had to share it with you all – how selfish of me not to!
What does “go to healthy weeknight meals” mean? Well, when I’m in a rush or I’m not planning on testing out a recipe for the blog on Lu for dinner, I have my “go-tos” that I don’t have to think about and always have ingredients for.
For example, cauliflower rice, salmon and a veg. I always have cauliflower rice, I always have salmon in the freezer and I obviously always have some sort of other vegetable in the fridge.
My cauliflower rice is da bomb, it really is. I sautee garlic, red onion, cauliflower and red pepper flakes together, add chicken broth, then the cauliflower rice, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper and more chicken broth. I cook it for a mere 5-10 minutes and then serve it alongside my salmon. Deeeelicious!
But, this blog post isn’t about cauliflower rice. This blog is only reserved for spiralized recipes. Obviously, I always have zucchinis in the refrigerator. The day I don’t have zucchinis is the day you’ll need to check my pulse.
Whenever I know it’s going to be a crazy week, I’ll buy bok choy and corn for this “go-to” meal. I hate to admit it, but I used a canned teriyaki sauce. Annie Chun’s is the best. Most importantly, it’s quick.
This meal is so flavorful, for minimal effort. I love the warmth of the garlic broth combined with the softness of the bok choy and the sweetness of the teriyaki sauce. It’s a home-run.
Speaking of bok choy, in the recipe it says to “remove tough bottoms” – this is what I mean:
Lu loves this dish. He always says, “Why isn’t this in a restaurant? Everyone would order it!” Well, honey, technically you’re in the greatest restaurant in the world: The Inspiralized Kitchen!
