As you probably remember, I'm a tad obsessed with rice bowls lately. They're easy to make, delicious, and totally customizeable, which means I add all sorts of nutritious (and fun!) ingredients to them, so I'm never bored with the same old, same old.
However, now that I'm consuming less meat in my diet, I'm always trying to find new and exciting ways to add protein to my rice bowls. I typically rely on beans, edamame, nuts, and more beans, so I was really happy when Louis Kemp reached out to me about their Louis Kemp Crab Delights® products.
As soon as I checked out the nutritional info on their Crab Delights Flake Style, I knew it would be a perfect (and super easy) addition to my beloved rice bowls. One serving has 70 calories and 6 grams of protein. It's also high in omega-3s. Awesome.
All of the Crab Delights products (there's even a Sriracha flavor!) are made with premium wild Alaska pollock. They're packaged as an easy, ready-to-eat alternative to crabmeat and other shellfish, so I quickly realized that I could turn my favorite salads, sandwiches, and pasta into special seafood dishes. Yay! I loved this new protein option, so it wasn't long until the Rainbow Rice Bowl was born!
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 8 ounces Louis Kemp Crab Delights Flake Style
- 1/4 cup finely diced red and yellow bell peppers
- 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
- 1/4 cup peas
- 1/4 cup shredded carrot
- 1.5 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
- 1.5 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp honey mustard
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
In a small bowl, make the dressing by whisking together the soy sauce, honey, olive oil, and mustard.
Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine brown rice, peppers, onions peas, and carrots.
Next, break apart the Crab Delights Flake Style using your fingers or cut diagonally with a knife to flake apart naturally; add to the mixing bowl.
Finally, pour the dressing into the bowl and combine well with the other ingredients.
Divide the rice between two bowls and serve!
Recipe makes 2 servings.
