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.
