Had never for some reason been particularly attracted to the Bayou Bowl recipe, one of a dozen fabulous recipes posted on the wall at Genghis Grill.
Guess I was wary of the sausage that the recipe calls for and usually went with the lean steak and chicken GG offers. I’ve had some pretty fatty sausage before – don’t care for it and, not knowing how incredibly lean and meaty GG’s sausage would turn out to be, figured I’d better steer clear.
But, after you’ve eaten at Genghis Grill 40 nights and 40 days consecutively, you’ve had the opportunity to try each recipe at least thrice. (I say day and night, not just to sound scriptural, but because they’re always plenty to take home and share or to make another meal.)
(They do have another 16 more amazing sounding “heart healthy” recipes here: http://tinyurl.com/heart-healthy-bowls.
Anyway, I got to looking at the GG BB recipe, and it did indeed sound pretty good. Then I noticed that the bowl had only 552 calories. (Each recipe’s caloric value is also helpfully posted on the wall.) So, Bayou Bowl it was for that day!
Bayou Bowl is now my current favorite, and as you can see from the photo, Shelvi really liked it, too. In fact, I found out the next day that she’d polished off the half box I’d brought home in my go box.
Actually, I don’t mind at all that Shelvi tries my food – I regularly dip into hers, and in fact, sampled that very day the Genghis Grill fajitas with tortillas she had selected. Heck, she’s lived me for 29 years and cooked for me almost every day…not an easy job! She deserves that and much more…
So, my favorites so far are the Beef Broccoli and the Bayou Bowl. Tried the Special Fried Rice today – it was really good too, and only 445 calories.
Here’s a close up of the Bayou Bowl, chock full of sausage, chicken, shrimp, marinated white fish, red & green bell peppers, onions, roasted tomato sauce, Cajun spices, garlic, cayenne, etc. over brown rice.
