I haven’t been posting for a while.. My work & personal life has been too busy, but finally I managed to squeeze some P&P time today 🙂
I’m the newest recruit at my office and my colleagues are slowly realizing that I am always eating. A year ago, I taught myself (with a little help from Fit in 30) how to eat healthier and improve my well being. My palate has changed. I started eating eggs every morning, foods I never thought were tasty eventually turned delicious. I started to cook creatively (Thank you Epicurious, The Kitchn, Yummly and Oh She Glows)
Since the weather is getting warmer, my hot comfort food cravings are slowly diminishing and I’ve started to make more creative salads. Here is my latest masterpiece!
Rice Ramen with Lemon Miso Dressing, Grilled Chicken & Spring Greens
Looks like summer, no?
Rice Ramen with Grilled Sesame Chicken & Miso Lemon Dressing:
- 1 cup of rice ramen (I used Lotus Foods’s Jade Pearl Rice Ramen, found at Whole Foods)
- 1/2 a chicken breast, grilled (use coconut oil)
- 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon of miso paste (I used Amano Shiro Miso, found at select grocery stores)
- 1 dash of sesame seeds
- 1/2 a lemon
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 large mushroom, sliced
- 2 handful of spring greens
- Olive oil
- Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 campari tomatoes, sliced into quarters (my fave!)
Cook the rice ramen and sliced mushroom in a boiling pot of water, once soft, strain and set aside. Mix the miso, water, lemon juice and sesame oil until they become a smooth consistent sauce. Lightly mix the sauce with the noodles and mushroom slices and plate. Add the grilled chicken slices and season with the sesame seeds.
Mix the spring greens and mix in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top the salad with campari tomatoes and… ta-da! A beautiful spring/summer meal is served.
Hope you enjoy!
