Flat Belly Bowl

20130401-231433.jpg

I have this mission every night when I’m cooking dinner. Well, most nights. Ok, just lately.

The mission is called “no vegetable left behind.” That is, I try to use (within reason) as many different vegetables that are likely to taste good together in every dish. And so far, I haven’t found many that don’t go too well together.

Tonight I made a healthy and easy (yes, we like those two words used together), AND delicious (I sealed the deal for you right there) stir fry bowl. While I didn’t serve it with any carb, you are free to eat this whatever way you would like (without judgement).

The best part of this delicious bowl is that it is filled with fresh ingredients that are filling and great for promoting a taught tummy. (but, you don’t have to take my word for it – go ahead, Google it).

INGREDIENTS

1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
Bell pepper, sliced
2 Jalapeños, sliced (if you don’t like spicy, omit this, scale back or remove seeds before cooking them)
Kale or other greens, chopped (several cups)
Low sodium Soy sauce, about 1 Tb.
Fresh ginger, minced or grated
Raw Shrimp – about a lb. (deveined and shell removed)
Lime juice
Avocado, sliced
Sliced almonds, toasted
Cilantro, chopped
Olive oil

STEPS
1. Heat olive oil in large sauté pan over medium heat until heated. Add garlic, onions, peppers and jalapeños and sauté over medium heat until browned.
2. Add greens (a lot of greens, it amazingly cooks down very quickly). Sauté greens with the onion, pepper mixture until it just starts to wilt. Add soy sauce and fresh grated ginger. Stir. Add lime juice. Stir.
3. Add shrimp to pan and toss with ingredients. Cook for several more minutes, or until shrimp has turned pink and greens have cooked down and wilted.
4. Scoop into bowl and top with sliced avocado, toasted almonds and cilantro.

Enjoy! Leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it.

About provocativepalate

My name is Tori and I am a twenty-something design/brand strategy professional. When not pursuing my creative work endeavors, I am likely to be found obsessing about food. Talking, dreaming, thinking, shopping, cooking... all food. all the time. I curiously enjoy fusion cooking and toying with new recipes. Expect to see some old favorites re-invented with a provocative twist. Although I am prudent with money these days, you wouldn't know it by judging my eclectic palate.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
