Cauliflower stands in for rice in this remake of the takeout favorite. This veggie-based rice can be found in the refrigerated section of your supermarket’s produce department or in the frozen aisle. You can also make your own by pulsing cauliflower florets in the food processor until the pieces reach the size of rice grains.
Vibrant in color and loaded with flavor, this slaw is the perfect side for protein. You can prep it entirely at home and take it on the road – or take it camping, as Melissa Urban suggests in her book. If making it ahead, simply pack the salad, dressing and garnishes separately and toss together right before serving.
Our version of coconut shrimp has a crunchy coating of fiber-rich coconut flour with unsweetened coconut flakes and toasty whole-wheat panko bread crumbs. Breading and freezing the shrimp raw ensures they will be perfectly cooked inside with a crispy crust.
This marinated steak uses bold flavors such as ginger and fish sauce. Make the marinade in advance, but only add the steak the same day. The pickled carrots and cucumbers are a great make-ahead side. You can also serve this dish with brown rice.
No need for a bottled sauce — here, you can make a quick, zesty teriyaki using orange juice, ginger and a few pantry staples. The recipe makes enough to coat the fish before roasting with plenty left over for drizzling and dipping at the table. (Tasty tip: Try it on the broccoli!)
