Vegan Recipe: Zippy Yams and Bok Choy

Zippy Yams and Bok Choy

Chili paste, lemon, and garlic give a delightful zip to the nutrient-rich yams and bok choy, which is a great source of calcium and folate. If you can’t find vegan Worcestershire sauce, you can skip it, and the dish will still be packed with flavor.

Ingredients, Makes 4 servings

2 small yams, cut into bite-size chunks
1 onion, quartered and sliced
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Thai chili paste
2 small heads bok choy, finely sliced
1 juice of 1/2 lemon


Put yams in a deep skillet and just cover with water. Cover skillet and boil for 5 to 10 minutes, until soft when pierced with a fork. Add onion and garlic and continue to simmer until about half of the water has boiled away. Add vegan Worcestershire sauce, chili paste, and bok choy. Simmer until bok choy is soft. Sprinkle lemon juice over the mixture and serve.
