Karen's Teriyaki Rice Bowl
Do you ever buy Amy's Teriyaki Rice Bowl in the frozen health food section? For close to $5? I loved it but thought the price tag outrageous considering its ingredients: rice, tofu, broccoli and seasoning. When I make this, I divvy it up in individual serving freezer containers. Makes about 4 servings.
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 pound firm tofu, drained and diced
2-3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 inch chunk of fresh ginger, diced
2 bunches of broccoli, chopped and nuked for about 3 minutes
1 red or orange bell pepper
teriyaki sauce (see below)
1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup soy sauce (or Shoyu)
1/4 cup dry cooking sherry
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Combine ingredients in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Gently simmer for a couple of minutes.
Cook rice in rice cooker. I use 2 cups of water. While rice is cooking, saute tofu with garlic and ginger for around 5 minutes on medium high heat, lightly browning. Add sliced bell pepper and continue cooking for around 5 more minutes. Time is not critical, I just like everything semi cooked; it's going to go straight in the freezer. Add cooked broccoli, rice and teriyaki sauce. Mix well and divvy up the portions into freezer containers. Enjoy later!
