leftover sauteed bok choy: thoughts for an encore performance?
i've got about 1.5 lbs of leftover bok choy and sliced snow peas, which i had sauteed in ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, and white wine last night (served w/brown rice and seared tuna).
the veggies are a bit soggy to serve simply reheated on their own tonight, so i'd like to come up with a creative way to repurpose them in tonight's dinner.
any thoughts would be appreciated!
Sounds like you had a great dinner last night, carignane.
Katecm said exactly what I was going to say (and what I had for lunch today):
I wrapped my shiitake red pepper edamame broccoli stir fry leftovers in one of these nice flax seed whole grain wraps i found at the grocery store. I added some veggie burger in there and ate with a snow pea sea bean white asparagus salad. It was great.
You could also mix into a soba noodle dish or serve in a light broth with farro or pearl barley as a soup.
I'd stir fry it to reheat and add eggs to make a scramble idea. If you have shrimp, add that in, too.
I had the same situation last week, except no snow peas. I drained and chopped up the bok choy and put it in some fried rice, with extra garlic, onions and pepper. It was pretty darn good; but then I like bok choy in just about anything. It would probably be even better with the snow peas, though.
Thanks, everyone! I ended up draining and chopping the bok choy with the intent of using it as dumpling filling with some tofu, but the whole thing still felt very wet. So I nixed the tofu, mixed in some leftover cooked brown rice instead, and made the dumplings! I served them with some baked Chinese 5-spice chicken thighs for protein. (My boyfriend is a triathlete so dinner must necessarily include protein.)
I still have a pretty decently-sized bowl of dumpling filling, so I think I'm going to have fried rice for lunch and hopefully put an end to the bok choy! :)
