What Type of Rice Should I Use?

You can use any type of rice you prefer—white, brown, or even wild rice. Each type offers its own unique flavor and texture.

Is It Necessary to Julienne the Peppers?

While julienned peppers add a more sophisticated texture, you can slice or dice them if you prefer.

Can I Use Pre-Cooked Chicken or Steak?

Absolutely! If you have leftover chicken or steak, this is a great way to repurpose it.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Marinate the Protein: If you’re using steak or chicken, consider marinating it for at least 30 minutes for maximum flavor.
  2. Ripe Avocados: Make sure your avocados are ripe but not overly mushy for the best texture.
  3. Quick Rice Cook: To save time, you can use a rice cooker or even pre-cooked rice.

  1. Vegan Version: Omit the steak and cheese for a vegan-friendly meal. You can add tofu as a protein source.
  2. Spicy Kick: Add some sliced jalapeños or a dash of hot sauce.
  3. Seafood Twist: Use grilled shrimp or fish instead of steak or chicken.

Where to Serve

This bowl is versatile. It’s great for a quick weekday dinner, but it’s also fancy enough to serve at a casual get-together or potluck. It pairs well with a crisp white wine or a refreshing iced tea.

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!


Store leftover rice and toppings in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator. The rice can last up to two days, and the veggies and protein for up to three days.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them

  1. Soggy Avocado: Use only ripe avocados and add them last to avoid sogginess.
  2. Overcooked Veggies: Cook the veggies on medium heat and monitor them to maintain their vibrant colors and textures.
  3. Dry Rice: Make sure to properly measure water when cooking rice. Stick to the 2:1 water to rice ratio for best results.

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.
