Rice Bowls

Sometimes after a hard day at work...and there have been quite a few lately...I just want to come home and make a microwave or toaster meal.  What is good to have on hand at that time is something that I've made a couple of days ahead of time but that is "comforting" at the same time. 

Honestly, I don't know what makes something comforting but this nice little rice bowl was!  I was inspired by a picture on Cate's blog and decided to make my own version.  Honestly, I don't remember exactly what was in it but it was good!  I just made some brown rice and roasted a bag of frozen Brussel's sprouts, onions, black olives and (I think...if not it would be a good addition!) eggplant.  After that, I mixed them together with some low sodium lite soy sauce.  When I was ready to eat I topped it all with avacado and tomato.  This was the perfect dinner and study fuel.  You can really make it anything you want.  I think next time I make this, I'd put some shrimp in it. 

Mmmm!  No real recipe...just make some rice and add everything else!  Enjoy!

What a great idea. I always have brown rice in the freezer and an assortment of leftover veggies from the week. I think you just inspired my dinner tonight.
