Spicy Asian Orange Bowl

Spicy Asian Orange Bowl
This is a great lunch for one. If you want something healthy and satisfying, give it a try. It's also quick to throw together : )

You can completely customize it to your own personal tastes.

First add a layer of Rice. Or Quinoa. Or Couscous - or whatever your favorite grain is.

Top it with your favorite veggies. Here, I used a Stir Fry medley from the freezer. But, other times I add raw veggies like Shredded Cabbage.

Other good toppings (cooked or raw):
Snow Peas, Peas, Edamame, Broccoli, Peanuts, Tofu, Almonds, Scallions, Carrots, Celery, Mandarin Orange Segments

If you're an Omnivore, Some cubed chicken would also go nicely.

This is a GREAT dish for using up those leftovers in the fridge : )

I make the sauce in the microwave, but if you prefer, you can make it in a saucepan on the stovetop. Just keep stirring until it simmers - which won't take very long at all.

Here's the Sauce for One 

Spicy Asian Orange Sauce for One to Two

1 Tablespoon Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Water
½ Tablespoon Sugar*
¼ teaspoon Sriracha(or to taste)
½ teaspoon Tapioca Starch
Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, till clear & bubbly (usually less than 1 minute total cooking time)

Here's the Sauce for a family

Spicy Asian Orange Sauce for 4 to 8

1/4 cup Orange Juice
1/4 cup  Soy Sauce
1/4 cup  Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1/4 cup  Water
2 Tablespoons Sugar*
1 teaspoon Sriracha (or to taste)
2 teaspoons Tapioca Starch
Microwaving, stirring every 15 seconds, till clear & bubbly

Here's the nutrition information per serving I calculated for this sauce on these sites for

*I tried this recipe with both 1) Pink Sweetener Packets (Saccharine) and 2) Measures-the-same-as-sugar-sucralose (Aka Splenda or Apriva). Don't use the Pink Packets (1) . But, if you use the Splenda-type sweetener that measures like sugar (2) - it  works like a dream. It also cuts your points in half, and significantly reduces your calories. Your call.

  1. Excellent blog post. I absolutely love this website.

  2. My two older girls love orange sauce! It's a great way to get veggies into them. They love rice, too, so we're definitely going to try this!
