This Rice Bowl Is Your New Lunch Go-To
If you need a quick, healthy meal that’s ready in a flash, but can’t bring yourself to eat one more chopped salad, take heart: This rice bowl is your new best friend. (We’ve told you about lunch bowls, right?) With fiber-rich brown rice, protein-packed egg, creamy avocado for texture, and raw scallion for some bite and zing, this nutritious meal is anything but boring. Add a drizzle of hot sauce over it all to spice things up, if you like. Make it extra easy on yourself by cooking a big batch of rice in advance, then assembling the bowls throughout the week. It’s a lunch (or dinner!) that takes the guesswork out of simple, flavorful food.
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced
- 2 cups cooked brown rice
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 large eggs
- 1 avocado, chopped
- Hot sauce (for serving)
Mix scallions, rice, and vinegar in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crack eggs into skillet; season with salt and pepper and cook until whites are set around the edges, about 1 minute. Flip eggs and cook to desired doneness, about 30 seconds for a runny yolk.
Divide rice among bowls; top with eggs, avocado, and hot sauce.
