MORE of my POKE BOWLS: TODAY’s POKE INCLUDE GROUND CHICKEN with NAVY BEANS, BASMATI RICE, BROCCOLI and POACHED EGG!
Ever since I discover Poke Bowls I became a top fan of them. The idea of dumping everything you love in a bowl feels so pleasant and comforting. So, every time that I have the opportunity to get away with a dish that gathers all the ingredients inside a single bowl, I do it. Smile.
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 35 minutes
Approximate Cost: $10.44 or $5.22 per serving
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free
Servings: 2 +
½ lb. 95% fat free ground chicken ($2.50)
1 Goya navy beans can, drained and rinsed (.99)
2 tbsp. dry onions (.70)
2 tbsp. Angie’s basting oil (.80)
1 ½ tsp. Sazon All-in-One seasoning (.25)
2 c. broccoli florets ($2.00)
2 eggs poached soft (.32)
1 bag of basmati brown rice ($2.48)
1 tbsp. Soy sauce (.20)
2 tsp. Lemon juice (.20)
Season the ground chicken with the dry onions, my basting oil and Sazon All-in-One seasoning.
Cook briefly in a skillet, then add the drained and rinsed can of navy beans. Stir until all ingredients are combined.
On a separate skillet, with ¼ c. of water steam the broccoli briefly until it turns bright green. Remove and set aside.
In the same skillet over med-heat add another ½ c. of water and 2 tsp. white vinegar. Bring to a light simmer, with a spoon stir the water in one direction to make a circular spin and immediately and ever so carefully add the egg in the middle. (one at a time) until it cooks to your liking. (I like it almost done since I don’t eat raw eggs.) The circular spin will keep it in one rounded form.
The basmati rice cooks in the microwave in 1 minute, 30 seconds, therefore, cook it and start plating your bowls; scoop rice in the bottom, add the chicken/beans mix on the side, soy sauce, lemon juice, garnish with broccoli florets and basil, then top with the egg and if you wish to go a step further, which I do for my husband, add hot sauce and lots of pepper. Smile.
