Nourishing Rice Bowl

ingredients (any combination of the following) -

  • cooked brown rice

  • a scoop of tahini, almond, or other nut/seed butter

  • a spoonful of miso paste

  • drizzle of olive or avocado oil

  • nutritional yeast flakes

  • dulse seaweed flakes

  • sesame, sunflower, pumpkin seeds

  • tamari, shoyu, soy sauce or liquid aminos

  • sauerkraut, kimchi, or other fermented goodness

  • hummus

  • sauteed mushrooms, onions, braised greens, tempeh, tofu, etc.

  • fresh cut veggies

  • cooked beans or lentils

  • homemade broth or stock, if desired (if you're using leftover rice, it's nice to re-heat it with a ladle of stock)

  • sea salt and pepper, to taste


As you can see, the possibilities are endless! Rice bowls make a great to-go lunch, are yummy cold (though I do prefer them hot, which is also friendlier for digestion and nutrient absorption), and are a quick and easy dinner. Have fun experimenting with different flavors and ingredients - whatever you have on hand!
