    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups (portobello) mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced & chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice (or cauliflower rice for low carb dieters)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger (or more/less to taste)
  • 1/3 cup (~2.7oz) low sodium teriyaki sauce, store-bought or homemade
  • Garnish
    • fresh cilantro, chopped
  • OPTIONAL PROTEIN
    • 15oz (three 5oz) salmon fillets, center-cut OR chicken
Steps
  1. Set oven or air fryer to 420F / 216C.  Toss Brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl with sea salt & pepper and oil.  Add to a (non-stick) baking tray or to the air-fryer basket.  Roast (or air-fry) for 10 – 12 minutes until outer leaves become seared BUT the sprouts are still vibrant green.  Wait until the sprouts are nearly halfway through cooking to proceed.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium-high heat.  Once hot add oil, garlic, onions and mushrooms.  Cook until the mushrooms shrink and the onions begin to turn brown and translucent, about 3 – 5 minutes.  Add the bell pepper and COOKED brown rice and mix together.
  3. Reduce the heat to a low-medium, then add the fresh ginger and roasted Brussels sprouts.  Fold everything together, then drizzle in the teriyaki sauce.  Garnish with cilantro and ENJOY!

  4. OPTIONAL PROTEIN – Marinate the salmon in (4 tablespoons) teriyaki sauce about 20 minutes at room temperature.   Set a nonstick skillet on high heat.  Once hot, spray with avocado oil.  Add the salmon with the skin side up to the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes, or until dark sear marks appear on the salmon.  Use tongs to flip the salmon over and cook for the remaining time, until desired readiness, about 6 – 9 minutes.  Continuously spoon any leftover teriyaki sauce over the salmon to cook through.
