Dinner that takes forever to make? Ain't got time for that.

As much as we enjoy cooking, most weeknights need simple meals. That’s why we love rice bowls. Rice bowls are the solution to nights when you’re too tired to think about cooking, but still need to eat. They’re the answer for when you only have a couple of ingredients in your fridge and can’t handle the thought of going to the store.

Sure, rice bowls can get fancy ― and we have some of those for you below ― but they can also be the genius solution to that half a cucumber, couple of carrots and leftover chicken wasting away in the fridge. Served on a bed of rice, with the right dressing, almost any stray ingredients can become dinner.
