One thing I'm loving about this day and age is all the cool ways we get to enjoy our vegetables!
When I was a kid, broccoli meant broccoli florets. Raw or steamed. And honestly? I wasn't a huge fan.
Fast forward to 2018 and we can enjoy our broccoli in so many cool ways! Broccoli tots...broccoli rice...broccoli slaw...you can even spiralize broccoli stems!
All these options mean new textures, and if you're like me, then texture plays a huge role in your like or dislike for a recipe.
Today, I'm excited to partner with Mann's to share their delicious Broccoli & Sweet Potato rice. Not only is it super convenient (no need to dig our your food processor to make your own veggie rice!), but it's got the BEST texture!
I used the veggie rice to make these meal prep bowls. Tons of veggies, super tasty and easy to prep!
Don't forget to pin this post to save it for later!
How to make these meal prep bowls
Teriyaki is the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and adds so much flavor to chicken. And what pairs perfectly with teriyaki chicken? Broccoli!
- We start by sauteeing the broccoli rice in some olive oil with salt and pepper. I used two bags to make six portions, so my pan was nice and full!
- Next, cook the chicken breast until it is cooked through.
- Sauce time! I shake up my homemade teriyaki sauce while the chicken is cooking, then pour it over top. Turn off the heat when it gets nice and bubbbly/thickened.
- Portion it out! One generous scoop of Broccoli & Sweet Potato Rice plus some chicken and a drizzle of sauce.
That's it! Altogether ready in under 30 minutes AND we don't need to dirty another pot to cook up rice. Hello EASY!!
How long are these meal prep bowls good for? They will be good stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. Re-heat until steaming hot and only re-heat one time. You can also freeze these for up to a month! I freeze right in my favorite meal prep containers. Thaw overnight in the fridge, then re-heat until steaming hot.
How else can I enjoy the Broccoli & Sweet Potato Rice? We also enjoyed a Greek version of this recipe with lemon zest & feta cheese sprinkled over everything (no teriyaki sauce). AND the veggie rice was also awesome baked up in my favorite Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins. Just put it straight in uncooked for an extra dose of veggies!
