Asian Power Bowl – 21 Day Fix/Portion Fix Approved

img_0428

I have recently developed a serious love for power bowls! We have them in my house at least once or twice a week lately. I think  what I love most about them is the ease of making them but that they are LOADED with nutrients and superfoods. Recently I searched for an asian-inspired power bowl on Pinterest but had a hard time finding ones that fit well with the 21 Day Fix/Portion Fix meal plan. So I decided to put together my own!

I wanted something fresh, filling, but quick and easy to make. I am a long-time lover of hibachi grills and those amazing little salads they serve with the ginger dressing. Wow, just wow. I crave them ALL the time and wanted to incorporate that taste somehow. Let me tell you. I hit the jackpot on this one. These are so DELICIOUS but healthy and I could seriously eat them every night for the rest of my life but I would probably get mercury poisoning. I might be cool with that though. Either way, these are a MUST-TRY.

Ingredients

Power Bowl – Portion Fix Cups: 1 Red, 1.5 Green, 1 Yellow 

  • Salmon (3 skinless fillets)
  • Head of Red Cabbage
  • Large Carrots (3-4) OR Bag of Pre-Shredded Carrots
  •  Fresh Garlic (3-4 cloves)
  • Scallions (1 bunch)
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Annie Chun’s Brown Rice Noodles
  • 1/4 c. – 1/2 c. Low-Sodium Soy Sauce

Ginger Dressing – Portion Fix Cups: 1 Orange 

  • 1/2 c. Tahini
  • 1/2 c. Water
  • 2 tbsp. Sesame Oil
  • 2 tbsp. Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp. Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 clove Garlic (minced)
  • 2-3 tsp. Fresh Ginger (minced)

Serves 3 

Directions

  1. One hour before preparing, marinate salmon in 1/4 to 1/2 cup of low-sodium soy sauce and 3-4 minced garlic cloves. Soy sauce is loaded with sodium so try not to overdo it. Marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  2. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot to prepare for brown rice noodles.
  4. While oven and water are heating up, chop entire head of red cabbage into small, shredded pieces (the smaller the better), shred 2-3 carrots, and chop scallions.
  5. Combine ingredients for dressing in a small bowl and mix until it is of a liquid consistency.
  6. Add salmon fillets to oven and cook for about 12-16 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. Once pot of water comes to a boil, add rice noodles. Drain when rice noodles are ready. These only take about 2-4 minutes to cook.
  8. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, drizzle dressing over top, top with cilantro, and ENJOY!

Clean Turkey Burgers

IMG_5631

A regular meal in our household are these delicious, clean turkey burgers! We started eating them about a year and a half ago and since then, I’ve been experimenting with adding ingredients. These are 100% clean, low in fat, and SO GOOD! You can use lean turkey instead of extra lean, but I find that they don’t taste much different and, hey, why don’t you save yourself the extra calories? 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. Extra Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1/4 c. Fresh Cilantro (use fresh only)
  • 1/4 c. Diced Red Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves (optional — finely chopped)
  • 1-2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Southwestern Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil (or olive oil)

Prepare your ingredients and then combine everything in a large bowl. Mix well. Grab a handful of the meat with ingredients and flatten into patties.

I use a grill pan to cook my turkey burgers but if you don’t have this, you can use a regular skillet. Add you 1 tbsp. of oil to the pan–we usually use coconut oil. Once your pan is heated up, place patties on pan and cook on medium to medium-high for about 7-8 minutes, flipping every few minutes.

We usually serve our turkey burgers with sliced tomato and avocado on top, either bun-less, if I’m feeling paleo that day, or with whole-wheat buns or Ezekial bread and oven-roasted brussels sprouts with sea salt and pepper (a recipe for another day)! My husband likes to add BBQ sauce but I think they have enough flavor to not have to add anything.
