Dinner Dishes

Stumped for dinner ideas this week?

If you like simple and healthy meals give these two a whirl:

Spicy Teriyaki Salmon

I simply grilled the fresh salmon on a grill pan and drizzled spicy teriyaki marinade (I recommend the Trader Joe’s variety) over it as it cooked.

At the same time, I sautéed some kale with sweet onions, adding spices and garlic to taste.

To assemble, I placed the salmon and kale on a bed of brown rice and topped the dish with some avocado and sesame seeds.

I also added some spicy mayo as a dipping option 😉

Not a fish fan?

checkout my first foray into cauliflower rice…

Cauliflower Rice Bowl

loosely based on Vegan Richa’s Rice Bowl

If you Google cauliflower rice you will find that there are plenty of ways to prepare it. I chose to sauté some finely chopped onions in a pan and then grate the raw cauliflower into the pan. I added some turmeric, hence the yellow color, and a bit of olive oil and cooked all of this for only a few minutes.

With the cauliflower rice as the base, I added some white beans, avocado, baked sweet potato, kale and some left over cooked freekeh (I promise this is a real word. Learn more about this super-grain here).

The bowl looked more presentable before the hungry doctor-husband got home and dug in before I could grab a pic. But I promise you can arrange your ingredients in a more blog-worthy manner for your own dining pleasure.

Let me know if you give these recipes a try. And feel free to pass along your own latest kitchen creations.
