Easy Brown Rice Vegetable Bowl

Why an Easy Brown Rice Vegetable Bowl?

When it comes to making a meal, bowl meals are all the rage.

  • They are what I call "Easy Peasy" to make

  • They are versatile in the ingredients you can make them with

  • They are an inexpensive way to make a meal

  • Meals can be made in advance
