Thai Vegan Bok Choy Rice Bowl recipe made in minutes. This vegan recipe is a rice bowl, lightly flavoured with coconut milk and Thai spices featuring fresh vegetables such as healthy bok choy, bell peppers, carrots, and mushrooms. The flavours come from Thai spices, garlic, shallots, ginger, fresh lime juice, and coconut milk’s creaminess.  This rice bowl is also naturally gluten-free 🙂

There is nothing fancy about this light plant based meal, except the healthy veggies. Think of it as steamed veggies in a lightly flavoured Thai coconut sauce with rice. Rice bowls are often favoured because they feature an array of veggies and are easy to prepare.

A delicate cabbage such as bok choy is considered a powerhouse among vegetables. This Chinese leaf vegetable is low in calories and an excellent source of vitamin A, C, calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron.

Ingredients

  • 13.5 oz. can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup GF vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. GF Thai green curry paste
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 2 tsp. Minced ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (button or shitake)
  • 2 tsp. Fresh lime juice
  • Pure sea salt to taste

    Instructions

  • Add coconut milk, broth, curry paste, shallots, ginger, garlic and honey in a large saucepan. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes
  • Add bell pepper, carrots, mushrooms, lime juice and season with salt. Cook for 8 more minutes
  • While the veggies are cooking quick blanch the bok choy. To cook bok choy bring a large pot of salted water to boil, add the bok choy, and cook for 30 seconds. Drain and place on a plate. The bok choy will keep cooking to perfection
  • Add rice and bok choy to the veggie broth and stir to combine until heated through. Enjoy!

      Sloppy texture and very unimaginative flavour. I won’t be making it again

        I am sorry to hear that. This vegan recipe is meant to be a quick bowl of healthy veggies and rice with a light Thai coconut flavour meal. Thank you for your honesty.
