Rice Bowl for Two

It doesn't have to be Valentine's Day for you to share this steamy rice bowl for two from a large decorative bowl with two pairs of chopsticks.

 

Makes 2 servings - Prep time: 10 minutes - Cook time: 45 minutes

 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth

2/3 cup uncooked brown rice

1/4 pound chicken tenderloins or 4 ounces tofu, cubed

2 cups broccoli florets

2 carrots, thinly sliced

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 avocado, thinly sliced

1 sheet toasted nori, cut or torn into small pieces

1/4 cup 100% orange juice

1/2 teaspoon barley miso

 

Directions:

- Combine broth, 2/3 cup water, rice, and chicken (if using) in a medium-sized pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is almost tender (around 35 minutes)

- Scatter broccoli and carrots over rice mixture, cover, and continue to cook until vegetables are tender (about 6 to 8 minutes more).

- Transfer broccoli and carrots to a plate, then shred chicken or add tofu, stirring it into the rice.

- Spoon the rice and chicken into a large bowl and nicely arrange the broccoli, carrots, pepper, avocado, and nori on top.

- In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and miso. Drizzle over the bowl, or serve on the side for dipping. Enjoy!
