It doesn't have to be Valentine's Day to share this "rice-bowl-built-for-two" from a large, decorative bowl with two pairs of chopsticks.

  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1/4 pound chicken tenderloins, about 2 to 3 pieces
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 sheet toasted nori, cut or torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon barley miso

Combine broth, 2/3 cup water, rice and chicken into a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until rice is almost tender, about 35 minutes. Scatter broccoli and carrots over the top, cover and continue to cook until vegetables are tender, 6 to 8 minutes more. Transfer broccoli and carrots to a plate, and then shred chicken, stirring it into the rice. Spoon rice and chicken into a large bowl and attractively arrange broccoli, carrots, peppers, avocado and nori on top. In a small bowl, whisk together orange juice and miso; drizzle over bowl, or serve on the side for dipping.
