Thanks for the rice bowls idea... I'm going to check it out! I've been experimenting with quinoa and think I could adapt some of the recipes for use with that too. I recently made this Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad from allrecipes.com and really liked it.
We often do 'rice bowls' at home as a go-to dinner ... brown rice & lentils, for example, with some baked tofu and roasted veggies as a common version. Roasted red peppers go into it ... nice on a cool winter evening.
Ohhhh, awesome. I've already spotted a couple I want to make, including the Chicken Rice Bowl. Thanks for sharing this, it's perfect comfort food for winter.

I recently discovered Laughing Planet, my new favorite restaurant. They have lots of innovative burritos, and a whole section of their menu is devoted to "bowls."
What's in a bowl? It's a comforting mix of grains, beans, veggies, and some kind of sauce. It doesn't get much better than that, especially on a cold day. But of course I can't afford to eat there every day, and I ran into a creative wall coming up with my own bowls.
But the other day on a lark I entered "rice bowl" into the search engine over at food.com. What a surprise! It spat out 122 recipes in several different cuisines from asian to "breakfast." So now I'm playing in the kitchen again, adapting them with quinoa and other grains to suit my purposes. I thought I'd share my idea with the list here because we all need a little comfort now and then.
