RICE BOWLS: THE BEST ALL-IN-ONE MEAL
We’ve got a soft spot in our hearts for any meal that captures the essence of a place in a bowl. And that goes double when it’s easy to whip up at home without a ton of fuss.
This rice bowl is an all-in-one meal that features a bed of lightly flavored brown rice piled high with fixings you might find at a sunny farmer’s market in Corfu.
Creamy hummus, bright tomato, crunchy cucumber and savory feta cheese mix perfectly with sprouts, Kalamata olives and flat leaf parsley. And a light, simple vinaigrette of olive oil and red wine vinegar contribute flavor without taking away from the clean perfection of the dish as a whole.
And you’re going to love how easy it is to make from scratch!
