I had a crew right here capturing video all final week and so they left me with a fridge filled with greens (poor me, proper?). Luckily, they have been all greens which are fairly shelf secure, so I used to be in a position to take a couple of days to determine what to do with them. Since everyone knows greens usually tend to get eaten in the event that they’re all prepped and able to go, I made a decision to do a brilliant veggie-tastic meal prep this week! This Maple Miso Roasted Carrot Meal Prep pairs some easy brown rice flavored with sesame oil, Sesame Kale, and my Maple Miso Roasted Carrots into one flavorful and good-for-you field. The wealthy, virtually butterscotch-like carrots go so effectively with the nutty rice and salty sesame kale. I do know that is going to be a go-to combo for me sooner or later, particularly since you’ll be able to sub candy potatoes for the carrots, and add a couple of different issues to jazz it up much more in order for you one thing further.
As I ate my manner by means of this meal prep this week, I believed of some different issues that will go very well with this meal. Avocado would simply be AWESOME due to the creaminess, however I’d most likely solely try this when avocados are on sale. The spicy peanut sauce from these tofu bowls would most likely even be nice. And lastly, just a little crunch could be good, so I’d experiment with including some sunflower seeds subsequent time! Want so as to add some meat? I recommend this tremendous straightforward Sticky Ginger Soy Glazed Chicken.
I occurred to have some brown basmati rice available that I bought at Aldi, however you would use common brown rice and even plain white rice should you choose. Just ensure to make use of the prompt water to rice ratio and cooking time listed on the package deal for no matter rice you utilize.

No leftovers this time! Yay! Each meal prep field bought 1.5 cups of the rice after which I simply divided the kale and carrots equally amongst them.
To make the rice, merely prepare dinner the rice with the water and salt in line with the package deal instructions, then fluff with a fork after cooking, and drizzle the sesame oil over high. Gently fold the rice to include the sesame oil and all its nutty taste.
What I really like most about this meal prep is how insanely straightforward it was! I began the carrots first, since they take a short time to roast, then start the rice whereas the carrots are roasting. The kale takes solely about 5 minutes to tear from the stems and rinse in a colander, then one other 5 minutes or so to wilt down as soon as it’s within the scorching pot. So loopy straightforward and a lot wholesome goodness to maintain me going all week!!
And as a result of a couple of folks ask each week, the containers I used to pack my meal prep this week are the Pyrex three cup rectangular containers. 🙂
