Mexican Rice Rainbow Bowls

Mexican rice bowl
One of my favorite meals right now is the ever colorful Rainbow Bowl. They can be sweet or savory. Sometimes I make a thick smoothie base and top it with pretty lines of seeds, nuts, granola, and fruit for a nutritious and colorful breakfast or snack. Other times, like here, I use a base of greens, quinoa, or rice and top with a rainbow of ingredients. This recipe is ridiculously easy. In fact it's really not a recipe at all. Let's call it rainbow bowl inspiration.

As a vegetarian, beans and rice are a staple in my house. Taco/burrito nights are just as much a staple, as it's one dinner my kids are guaranteed to gobble up without any complaints. To use up the leftovers, I like to make these Mexican Rice Rainbow Bowls. You can top them with anything you would like, and I wish I had had some salsa for this one.
