The Ultimate Rice Bowl

April 16th, 2012 by Steve Pavlina

More than 5 years in the making… the long awaited sequel to How to Cook Brown Rice is finally here!

Ultimate Rice BowlThe Ultimate Rice Bowl is my own special recipe for a delicious vegan/vegetarian meal. It’s the perfect blend of warm, chewy, crunchy, and savory. It’s also very easy to make — no special cooking skill required.

This recipe is for a single serving of a very filling meal. If you want to make a smaller or bigger batch, feel free to adjust the ingredients proportionally.

Here’s how to make it…

Ingredients

  • 1-2 cups cooked brown rice, depending on how hungry you are (make according to instructions in How to Cook Brown Rice)
  • 1/3 cup diced cucumber (I prefer English cucumbers)
  • 1 small tomato, diced (I normally use a roma tomato)
  • 4-5 sun dried tomatoes, each cut into 6-8 pieces (The best are Mediterranean Organic Sundried Tomatoes)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 avocado, diced
  • 2-4 tbsp minced green onion
  • 1-2 tsp toasted sesame oil (I use Spectrum Naturals Organic Sesame Oil)
  • tamari to taste (a few splashes with a shaker bottle)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (raw or toasted)

Instructions

  1. Put the rice in a bowl.
  2. Add sesame oil, tamari, and sesame seeds. Use a fork to mix.
  3. Add cucumber, tomato, sun dried tomatoes, avocado, and green onion. Mix again.
  4. Enjoy!

Variations

  • Add 1 tsp mirin for a sweeter flavor (when you add the sesame oil, tamari, and sesame seeds)
  • Add 1/3 cup bok choy, chopped
  • Substitute regular soy sauce or shoyu for tamari
  • If you like a strong onion flavor, try using minced white, brown, or red onion instead of green onion

You can certainly make this with leftover rice, but I suggest heating the rice first since this dish is best served warm.

I must caution you that this can be an addictive recipe. Once you try it, expect to make it often! :)
