These rice bowls are nourishing, colorful and filling enough to work as a simple weekday dinner. They are also extremely adaptable, so feel free to add any mix-ins you particularly love: Sautéed red peppers and onions are great, as are diced tomatoes. To make these bowls vegan, omit the cheese and sour cream, or replace with vegan alternatives.

• 3⁄4 cup chopped cilantro, for serving (prepared Sunday)

1. In separate small saucepans over low heat, reheat green rice, spiced black beans and sweet potatoes (or microwave to save time) until warmed.
