In another large skillet place baby bok choy, broccoli and ½ cup water.  Basically you want to steam the veggies, place on medium high, covered for about 4 minutes.  Pour in the remaining veggie broth and balsamic vinaigrette.  Cover and cook for another couple minutes.  The baby bok choy and broccoli do not take very long to cook, so keep a close eye on them.
