Spicy Ginger-Carrot Slaw over Steamed Rice
When you are short on time, and looking for a quick, light meal, rice bowls are a great way to go.
Simply steam some of your favorite white or brown rice, and top with sliced grilled chicken, beef, tofu or fish and spoon over this spicy, fresh, flavorful slaw. (This is a great dish to make using your leftover rice and/or whatever leftover protein you may have in the fridge!)
Dinner in no time, served with a spoon!
