Rice Bowl Meals Your Family Will Love

A rice bowl is a great way to pack plenty of nutritious foods into one delicious meal. With a rice bowl, you can use different ingredients to create the perfect flavor combination. They are the perfect option if you have picky eaters in your family, because they’re so simple to customize. Just cook up a big batch of brown rice or quinoa and chop up an assortment of veggies, and you’ll have all of the ingredients for a tasty meal. Here are some of my favorite ways to mix up a healthy rice bowl:

Start with a base of brown rice or quinoa. Brown rice is high in fiber and essential minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium, and potassium. It takes a bit longer to cook than white rice, but it is worth the wait. Brown rice has a subtle, nutty flavor. You can also substitute quinoa for rice. Quinoa is high in protein and amino acids in addition to the nutrients found in brown rice.

Cook as much brown rice or quinoa as you need. You can make enough for one meal, or make a large batch that you can use for several meals throughout the week. Store leftover rice or quinoa in your fridge to use whenever you want. A leftover rice bowl can also be a quick and satisfying lunch!

Burrito Rice Bowl:
Combine some of your favorite burrito fillings for a flavorful rice bowl. Add some black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro to your brown rice or quinoa base. Mix in a little bit of cumin, and squeeze some lime juice over the top.

Asian-Inspired Rice Bowl:
I love rice bowls that combine a variety of different tastes. Top your rice or quinoa with shredded cabbage, green onions, steamed broccoli, shredded carrots, and chopped cooked mushrooms. Mix in a few tablespoons of low-sodium soy sauce.

Mediterranean-Inspired Rice Bowl:
Combine diced tomatoes, sliced roasted red pepper, spinach, olives, and feta cheese with your favorite base for a tasty rice bowl.

You can customize your rice bowl even further by mixing in your favorite protein. Add grilled chicken breast, tofu, or an egg for a healthy protein boost!

Try one or more of these rice bowl ideas the next time you’re looking for meal ideas. You can even experiment with whatever vegetables or protein you have on hand. There’s no wrong way to make a rice bowl!
