Summer Rice Bowl

I've been meaning to make a rice bowl forever. Finally! They are as delicious as whatever is put into them. I used a whole grain, lots of fresh vegetables, and an egg for protein. Gotta love it!


1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup chopped baby spinach
2 Tbs. torn fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped tomato (I used red and yellow heirloom tomatoes)
1/4 avocado, chopped
5 olives
1 hardboiled egg, peeled and halved
pinch of salt
1 Tbs. balsamic dressing

Directions: Place the brown rice in a bowl. Top with the spinach and basil, then the pepper, tomato, avocado, and olives. Place the egg halves at the edge of the bowl. Sprinkle the pinch of salt over the egg, and drizzle the dressing over the rice bowl.

Serves 1
Stealthy Cooking Tip: Don't like one of the ingredients? No problem. Substitute! I substituted a sliced chicken thigh for the egg, and a variety of peppers for the tomato for one of my picky eaters. Still lots of vegetables, healthy carbs, and enough protein to make this last!
