Bacon and Broccoli Rice Bowl

Who says bacon and eggs can't be healthy? When used sparingly and in the right way, you need only a little. If you're in the mood for something[ a little fancier, dress this rice bowl up by poaching the egg instead of hard-cooking it.]

NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 large eggs
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 cups cooked brown rice
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 scallions, sliced, white and green parts separated
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
Directions

Cover the eggs with about 1 inch of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a high simmer, cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 8 minutes. Run under cold water; peel and quarter each.

Meanwhile, arrange the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes per side. Remove the bacon from the skillet and chop into bite-size pieces.

Whisk together the chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add the rice, broccoli and scallion whites and toss to combine. Cover and microwave on high, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is crisp-tender and the rice is warmed through, about 6 minutes.

Divide the rice-broccoli mixture among four bowls. Top each with a quartered egg, bacon, carrot and scallion greens. Drizzle each with sesame oil.
