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 and really liked it.

I've got two I want to try soon, both this hoisin chicken one (
), and a chipotle chicken one. The chipotle chicken one is meant for a wrap but I think it'd be great as part of a rice bowl maybe do cilantro lime rice with it

I love teriyaki bowls! Brown rice on the bottom, then veggies, grilled chicken and teriyaki sauce on top.

It's also great with a Mexican theme...rice, beans, corn, salsa, and a little cheese. Yum!

I made one the other night with farro on the bottom (quicker to cook than the rice I have) topped with veggies & turkey in sloppy joe sauce. :)

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.

I love tofu, will definitely give that one a try. I'm making the chicken bowl tonight for dinner.

Try the tofu and shredded carrot bowl too. It has lots of sesame oil, but you could always use less. Very nice.

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 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.
