A few days ago,
I went to one of my favourite
specialty grocery stores
to pick up a few things for the
They were serving up a delicious
lunch - rice bowl.
I had to try it so I stood in line
and it was so worth the wait!
The hot rice and meat with
the crunchiness of the cold veggies was
a treat for the senses.
I watched how they assembled
this deliciousness and thought
I'd try it at home....
afterall there were some Thai seasoned
chicken breasts in the freezer,
waiting to be eaten!
There really isn't a recipe
but here are the ingredients:
Warm Rice - I used brown rice
Meat (can be pulled pork, pulled chicken,or beef
cooked and flavoured with Teriyaki or BBQ sauces)
I used chicken breast and Thai seasoning.
Cold crispy items:
Julienne shredded carrots, zucchini,
and red peppers
chopped green onion, purple cauliflower,
and sliced radishes
Dressings (any or all of the following):
Sesame Oil - do not omit and use sparingly
Hot Sauce (we used Franks)
Soy Sauce - Optional
Put a nice serving of warm rice in the
bottom of the bowl
Top the rice with the mushrooms,
crispy veggies and a scant splash of
sesame oil (a splash of soy sauce too if desired)
Add the meat and dress it
with Teriyaki Sauce and Hot Sauce
Garnish with the radishes,
green onions and a fried egg (optional).
Till next time ............... savour the tastes of the Orient!
