San Choy Bow
Are you in charge of deciding what to make for dinner each night?
Gosh it can get tiresome can’t it!
Thankfully there’s one person in my household I can turn to to help me meal plan, my daughter! When she shoots out all her suggestions I feel the relief wash over me that I don’t have to do all the heavy lifting thinking on my own. She’ll usually choose familiar recipes, mostly from my blog, but occasionally she’s come up with something random, like San Choy Bow!
So clearly she also provides me with inspirational ideas for recipes and it’s always refreshing adding new meals to my meal planning repertoire. Below I share my new recipe for San Choy Bow which my whole family absolutely loved by the way.
By the way, my daughter’s ALL TIME favourite meal is my Slow Cooked Beef Short Ribs. She can’t get enough of it and luckily it’s probably one of the easiest recipes on my blog!
You’ll notice some of the ingredients linked in the recipe which can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite-shop, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They offer amazing quality ingredients and value for money and they stock so many of my favourite products and I don’t even have to leave the house!
