white fish, cooked w/ salt & pepper in a frying pan w/ some olive oil
fresh basil (lots)
sliced cucumbers (I like the persian ones at trader joes)
fresh pineapple chunks
Optional ideas: Napa Cabbage, lettuce, snap peas, red bell peppers, thin sliced onion
Sauce: Nuoc Cham (click for recipe)
Canned tuna in oil, preferably an imported super delicious one (like Flott or Ortiz)
Canned garbanzo beans
Veggies - as many as you happen to have from this list:
shaved (thinly sliced) fennel
arugula, cabbage or lettuce
Feta cheese - I've been loving french feta lately, it seems softer, more like chevre
Sauce: olive oil, lemon juice, coarse salt & fresh ground pepper
I have to add that nuts are also amazing in rice bowls. So is a vinaigrette of oil & balsamic. Avocados are always excellent. Seriously, if it sounds good to you, or you have it sitting in your fridge, just throw it in.
Also, i have been buying this amazing organic brown basmati rice from costco. It comes in a colorful burlap bag. I have never been very fond of brown rice, but you barely even notice with this kind somehow. So look for it at costco. Super cute bag, organic, basamati. Have fun!!
