Bok Broc Buddha Bowl

Yield: 2 servings
- 1 cup uncooked quinoa, directions below
- 1 TB of your preferred sauté oil (olive or coconut)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 tsp ginger, grated
- 1 head of broccoli crowns
- ¼ cup organic vegetable broth
- 1 large or 2 small bunches of bok choy, remove the widest end of the stalk, chopped into ½ inch strips widthwise
- 1 TB coconut aminos
- Sea salt to taste
- ½ a ripe avocado, sliced thinly
- Togirashi, a Japanese 7-spice seasoning
To cook quinoa, measure 1 cup into a fine mesh strainer, rinse thoroughly with cold water, then drain well. Transfer to a medium sized pot and add 2 cups water and a pinch of sea salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to a simmer and cook for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove quinoa from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes with the lid on. Fluff quinoa with a fork before serving.
Meanwhile, put the oil, garlic and ginger in a cold sauté pan (this prevents the garlic and ginger from burning) and bring to medium heat until garlic and ginger are fragrant and lightly browned.
Add the broccoli crowns and ¼ cup of vegetable broth, a pinch of sea salt and cover to steam the broccoli crowns. When nearly done (test with a fork), add the bok choy and coconut aminos. Continue to cook with the lid off and remove from heat once the bok choy is slightly wilted.
To serve, place a hearty scoop of quinoa in a bowl and top with your bok-broc mixture. Then fan some avocado slices on top and sprinkle with spicy Togirashi!
