Happy Saturday! Rice bowls are one of my favorite things to cook. They are customizable to what you have and need to use up; they’re usually pretty quick and simple. And best of all, they can be super colorful and full of good and healthy ingredients. Another plus? They are delicious served warm or cold, which also makes them great as meal prep for lunches through the week.

I have an absolutely delicious and easy recipe for you today, Teriyaki Salmon Rice Bowls! I love a rice bowl, especially for its easy-customization. You can add whatever veggies you like or need to use up. Make it more like a rice salad, by adding a bunch of fresh or sautéd greens, steamed broccoli, carrots, green beans, snow peas…whatever you like! Today, I am adding edamame (soy beans), avocado and pickled ginger. This is a great Sunday Supper, or make it for meal prep through the week, it’s great served cold or hot.
This week I have a quick and easy one-pan meal that is healthy, satisfying and totally customizable. This is a perfect, end-of-the-week meal because you can use up all the bits of leftover veggies in the fridge. It’s also a great meal prep dish for the week ahead: make a big pot of rice, crisp it up and prep it in containers, to which you can add veggies (read: future leftovers) and toppings as the week rolls on. Let’s go Crispy Rice Bowl!
Today’s dish is a popular street food in Thailand, it’s called Pad Gra Prow Gai. Served with a fried egg, this dish is savory, sweet, a little spicy and thoroughly delicious. The fresh basil leaves give it a sweet, fresh flavor; the sauce coats the ground chicken and crunchy green beans for a ton of savory flavor in every bite. I had this dish recently at a local Thai restaurant and I couldn’t wait to try it at home. It’s super easy, are you ready? Let’s do this Thai Basil Chicken Stir Fry!
A very simple preparation for a dish that packs a ton of fresh flavor and healthy benefits. This Tropical Salmon Rice Bowl is a great dish that is enjoyable hot or cold; it would be great for meal prepping too. The coconut flavor is mild, yet its aroma is evocative of a tropical vacation. The fresh fruit is juicy and sweet, with just enough acidity in the pineapple for a balanced combination. Salmon is wonderful poached, the gentle cooking helps it retain so much moisture and flavor.
Today I have an easy, light meal that’s a cinch to put together. With make ahead components, you can get these rice bowls together in about 20 minutes. Simply prepared, marinated teriyaki chicken thighs top steamed rice and a simple salad; with carrot ginger dressing and extra teriyaki sauce. Like a restaurant-style Bento box, this Simple Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl is flavorful and so satisfying
Today we have the spicy, tangy, savory, umami-rich Thai salad called Larb. Ground meat, in today’s recipe it’s turkey, is sautéd in spices and aromatics then tossed with veggies in a simple dressing of lime juice and fish sauce. Serve larb with rice and/or lettuce cups for a light and satisfying dish that is perfect for summer’s hot weather. Let’s do it! It’s Thai Larb Salad.
