Maybe you’ve noticed, but I love food in bowls. All of my baked oatmeals are in bowls. Most of my dinners are in bowls. But these are the easiest, most delicious bowls you could make right now. They’re super inexpensive too! And very customizable. I’ll show you our favorite way to make these, but switch the veggies up to your heart’s content! Yummm. 🙂
The base is rice. We prefer brown rice, but if you’re a white rice family, go for it. In the rice maker, we let the rice cook a couple of hours in advance so it’s hard the chance to cool a little before we eat it. Then, when we’re ready, we chop our veggies, assemble our bowls, and top with coconut aminos! Or liquid aminos / tamari / soy sauce. Whatever you prefer. See? Customizable!
I love these bowls because they’re so colorful and nutritious! They barely take any prep at all, and you don’t have to cook much. Especially if you have a rice maker. With that thing, it’s easy peasy! But the chopped seaweed is what really MAKES this bowl. It’s the best part, IMO. So I hope you don’t skip it!
We love these bowls so much! But we have a bunch of other dinner options on the blog too. Check out our Best Mac and Cheese, Cheesy Broccoli Soup, Quinoa and Veggies, Brown Rice and Lentil Loaf, and Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.

Rice, fresh vegetables, and chopped nori topped with coconut aminos - it makes the perfect plant-based dinner! Gluten-free, soy-free, oil-free, and delicious!

Divide rice, veggies, and nori between 4 bowls and top each with 1 tbsp coconut aminos (or sauce of choice).
*We used these seaweed snacks and enjoyed them in this! Just one package chopped up was more than enough for three people.
**You could also use liquid aminos, tamari, or (if not GF) soy sauce. If you try a different sauce, comment below so I can give it a shot too!
