Today’s dish is a super simple and easy one. It is a product of being basically broke and wanting to eat healthier. I don’t think I realized that when I started all this, how expensive eating healthy can be. These skewers don’t require a lot of time, money, or preparation though, which is definitely a plus. You can make them if you are in a pinch, like me, and have little money AND little time to cook anymore. I find myself coming home from work super late and exhausted – making the prospect of cooking a daunting task. Fear not, just prep these the night before and pop em on the grill/grill pan and you are ready to go!
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into large cubes
- Ground pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced (or garlic powder)
- Parsley, finely minced
- 1 large lemon, juiced
- Cherry tomatoes
- Season the chicken cubes with pepper, salt, garlic, and parsley
- Place in a bag with lemon juice for 1 hour – overnight
- Place chicken cubes on a skewer and grill until cooked
- At the same time, lightly wilt some spinach with EVOO in a pan and add the cherry tomatoes and cook for a few minutes
- Place the skewers over the bed of spinach and tomatoes and enjoy your gluten free, high protein meal!
Hi everyone! Seriously, long time no talk/update, but that is most definitely on me. I keep meaning to update this thing or post something, and every time I thought about it, something came up, or I forgot, or I’m not sure really. Well as life update, I moved back to the Bay area for work and started about a month ago. It’s been crazy readjusting to life here and to the prices of everything…. But one thing I noticed was that there were TON of poke bowl places…basically Chipotle for us Asian people. So, I saw that ahi tuna was on sale at the market and decided to try and make a bowl for myself. Most of these ingredients are completely optional and you can make it however you want. It ended up being a really filling and refreshing/somewhat light meal.
- Ahi tuna, cut into small cubes
- 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
- green onion, finely chopped
- Brown rice
- Radishes, sliced
- Cucumber, sliced
- Avocado, sliced
- Lettuce (I used spring mix)
- Nori, cut into strips
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp chili paste (to taste)
- Mix tuna, onion, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili paste in a bowl and let sit in the refrigerator for ~1 hour
- In a large bowl, arrange the brown rice, radishes, cucumbers, and avocados (or whatever ingredients you are using)
- Put some of the poke into the bowl and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and nori strips
- Enjoy a super easy and delicious meal!
