I love rice bowls.
I am first generation American in an all Jamaican family. People from the Caribbean practically bathe in rice on a daily basis. So when I was presented with the opportunity to create a stir with my own Rice bowls using Della Rice I didn’t hesitate!
As a Della Rice Ambassador, the wonderful people at Della Rice were awesome enough to send me a box full of their flavorful rice. I had a hard time choosing which rice to use but I was in the mood for a flavor explosion so I chose the Jasmine Rice with Roasted Garlic.
When I opened the bag I was immediately drawn to the smell. I had never smelled such an amazing flavor in uncooked rice! I even had the hubby smell it and he was sold.
I decided to create a Steak Veggie and Avocado Rice Bowl because… well don’t those ingredients sound amazing together?! My hubby wasn’t in the mood for steak so he added grilled chicken instead! Truth be told you don’t have to add meat at all, this could easily be a veggies and avocado rice bowl on its own because the rice is the main star!
Steak Veggie and Avocado Rice Bowl (Serves 4)
Preparation time: 20 Minutes (veggies only)
One cup of Della Jasmine Rice with Garlic
One plum tomato, diced
One green pepper, julienned
One red pepper, julienned
One small onion, sliced
One small Haas avocado, cored and sliced
Cheese garnish optional.
Steak or chicken is optional. Season meat with usual blend. Prepare to your liking.
Cook Della Rice according to package directions. While rice is cooking (20 minutes), prepare vegetables. Sautee the green peppers, red peppers and onion over a low heat until tender. Keep avocado and tomato on the side.
Place rice in bowl, top with green peppers, red peppers and onion in the middle. Place the sliced avocado in a circular formation around the vegetables. Top with diced tomato and a sprinkle of Mexican blend shredded cheese.

[…] time to figure out what my second rice bowl from Della Rice would be. The options were endless! The Steak, Veggie and Avocado Della Rice bowl was pretty awesome so I knew I had to match it–and I think I […]

Pre-seasoned rice sounds great! Definitely a great a time-saver. I usually am not a fan of plain cooked rice so I do something throw in some minced garlic if I have extra time.
