The Javanese Bowl

This is a recipe from my dear friend Megan (with whom I've gone to college, survived grad school, blogged, and now work with at Redeemed Reader). This fits in perfectly with our "dinner bowl" approach these days, and meals like this are endlessly helpful when serving young eaters or when adapting to serve more than expected for dinner. As with some of our other bowls (like BiBimBap), there is a seemingly odd assortment of things...but it all works together. This is also a great choice if you have some cooked rice and chicken--you won't be slaving over a hot stove or turning on your oven. I don't have a picture yet--so sorry!

Javanese Dinner

Set out in individual bowls:
  • Cooked rice
  • Diced cooked chicken
  • Pineapple tidbits
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Sliced green onions
  • Shredded coconut
  • Shredded cheese
  • Diced celery
  • Sprouts
  • Chow mein noodles
  • Chicken gravy (roux with butter/flour, add chicken stock and salt and pepper)

Everyone piles a little of what they want on a plate. Don't take too much of any one
thing, because you end up with a big pile). Try it!
