Rice and Veggie Bowl

The ultimate "bowl," this Rice and Veggie Bowl combines fresh veg with grains and the creamy taste of fried egg to create the perfect all-in-one dinner!
Have you noticed that “bowls” are really, really IN right now? Smoothie bowls, burrito bowls, veggie bowls, rice bowls…….they’re everywhere. The very cool thing is that this fad is super fun, easy, creative and often very healthy! Hooray! Forget spending an hour at the stove, slaving away with four different pots, plus a pan in the oven and a couple mixing bowls on the side. People, does anyone have time for that? I certainly don’t! Plus, when you’re all finished, the stuff has to be washed and put away. It’s just not happening in our crazy, busy world.

Moms of the world, here’s a simple, fresh, easy answer: the Rice and Veggie Bowl! Wa-la. Grain, veg, protein all swirled in one delicious and colorful BOWL. Your kids will stay full for DAYS! And do any of you have a child that’s a “mixer?” You know…they’re the ones who always have to mix everything together before they eat it. I did this with ice cream as a child. I couldn’t just eat a bowl of ice cream by the spoonful. No, I stirred and stirred and stirred until it became a lovely swirl of melted cream, pretty much a milkshake in a bowl. HEY…there’s another “bowl” for you…the milkshake bowl 🙂 Anyway, the Rice and Veggie Bowl is the perfect meal for a mixer. After cooking the rice and veggies, fry an egg and place it on the tippy top of your bowl. Let your little “mixer” break that runny yolk and stir, stir, stir! Mmmm…the result is a creamy bowl of goodness! How awesome…you can play with your food AND eat it!

We love using a mix of brown rice and quinoa because they both have unique health benefits and taste great together. Quinoa especially, is a superfood that packs a punch of protein, fiber and crucial vitamins and minerals!

    Hello, this recipe looks great, but how much rice should one use? I’d like to make this with regular brown rice, but I’m not sure how many cups 2 packages yields? Also, do you prefer this dish as an entree or a side? Just curious!

    Thanks! 😉

    • Reply Elizabeth June 8, 2017 at 7:15 pm

      Maddy, thanks for asking about this recipe! I think a good rule of thumb is that 1 cup of uncooked brown rice will serve about 4 people. I usually make more than that, and use it for leftovers (or for seconds.) Two packages of the quinoa packets we used yield approx. 4 cups in total.
      With the egg on top, I think this is the perfect one-bowl entree! You could easily not serve the egg with it to make it a side dish, but it is pretty hearty.
      Hope that helps! Happy cooking…and eating!
