The greatness of the "bowl" is that it encourages you to make something varied and delicious with items you already have on hand. This bowl above combines pinto beans, cooked rice, broccoli and avocado and tops it with a fried egg. If this had been for me, there would have been salsa and hot sauce too!
Beans and/or a grain, some lightly cooked greens, roasted vegetables, olives, nuts and your favorite sauces are all you need to make a quick lunch or dinner that is healthy and uses the best produce of the season. Think Asian or Mediterranean or Indian! Mix cooked and raw vegetables. This is the perfect dish for those dried lentils or new grain you've been meaning to try or those fancy flavored olive oils or vinegars.
