As with soup and tacos, there aren't exactly rules when it comes to creating a rice bowl, just a set of loose guidelines that you can follow to craft your ultimate finished product. Rice will provide a blank-canvas base, much like broth in a soup and a shell in tacos; then it's up to you to pick the veggie add-ins and a protein. The options are seemingly endless — not to mention convenient. If you find yourself with a refrigerator full of strays, like that half-full container of prepared rice, those two random carrots and a handful of black beans, you're well on your way to a complete dinner. Food Network Magazine utilized a similar approach in its recipe for Rice Bowls with Fried Eggs, which is easy enough that you can execute it on even the busiest of weeknights in just 30 quick minutes.

Featuring a hearty base of ready-to-go brown rice, these fuss-free bowls are topped with earthy shiitake mushrooms and tender broccoli, as well as bright snow peas. Sauteing the veggies in a mixture of tangy teriyaki sauce and a squeeze of Sriracha ensures that there will be plenty of flavor and a bit of subtle spice throughout. To bring even more heft to the bowl, finish the dish with a sunny-side-up egg for a boost of protein, and drizzle with more Sriracha for added heat.

Meatless Monday, an international movement, encourages people everywhere to cut meat one day a week for personal and planetary health. Browse more Meatless Monday recipes.
