I was planning a nice little game of guess what that breading is made out of, but that’s been spoiled by the name of the recipe.
This is a Bon Appetit recipe from a mini book that I think I got because I subscribe. It’s called everyday meals. Frankly, I really didn’t think BA printed recipes that are simple, but this one is. It just bakes in the oven.
In the interest of being calorie smart I made Hungry Girl’s Broc ‘n Ginger Tuna Bowl for lunch today. It is not fancy, and honestly I wasn’t looking forward to it, but I have that insatiable need to try things. It turned out okay. Of course there’s more to the story.
My job was 9:00 to 4:00 today. I do not care for rising before the sun. It seems that the only time jobs start at 9:00 is when an out-of-state attorney is involved. It turns out we finished at 2:00, so I can’t really complain, much. Anyway, they wound up ordering lunch from the Corner Bakery. This is an uncommon occurrence. Because of the 9:00 start and the fact that I couldn’t find the building, my usual routine of eating my cereal once I arrive in the parking garage kind of didn’t happen. Short story long: I ate my breakfast at lunch, took home a box lunch for my honey, and like a ravenous animal polished off the broccoli and tuna while exiting the garage.
Now, even though I didn’t think the tuna bowl looked so great — didn’t even take a picture for you — and I figured it was the stinkiest combination ever, the young male parking attendant commented on how good it looked and wanted to know where I got the recipe. I was impressed that he knew all about Hungry Girl and he swore he was going to make it tonight.
The recipe couldn’t be easier. I do sound like a broken record.
3 cups of steamed broccoli
5 oz tuna
2 TB low-fat sesame ginger dressing – I used Paul Newman\
