Welcome Spring- Green Stir Fry

Trying to eat light (less carbs, more vegetables) is not my favorite way to eat. I need something to crunch! This delivers ( as an added treat, it has bacon!) So, it may not be the lightest vegetable dish but it was delicious.


1 head bok choy, rinsed and sliced thin
frozen baby Brussels sprouts, defrosted and drained
1 onion, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
2 tbs olive oil
3 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 carton baby spinach, rinsed and drained

I like to fold the bacon in thirds, stick it in the freezer for a few hours. I think it's easier to chop that way.

Heat skillet with the 1 tbsp olive oil. When hot, add bacon and cook until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. Drain grease. Add another Tbsp olive oil to skillet and add onions. After a few min add the bok choy. Follow with the garlic and Brussels sprouts. Add spinach at the last minute. Season with plenty of cracked pepper and check if it needs salt. Spoon into a large bowl and top with bacon.
