Fennel Fried Rice
In a pat of butter with a splash of olive oil, I browned sliced fennel with cubes of chicken. Once the chicken was cooked through, I added beaten eggs and cooked those completely. Then I added already cooked brown rice and another pat of butter. Then I seasoned the rice with some soy sauce.
With protein and a carb together in this dish, all I needed to round out the dinner plate was a cooked veggie and a raw one. Visually this is all very neutral in color. If I had them, I would have sprinkled this with black sesame seeds. Instead I added a splash of color on my plate with steamed broccoli and a sunomo-style salad of sliced carrots, turnips, and radishes.
