Rice Bowls (Build Your Own!)
These rice bowls are inspired by my favorite restaurant CAVA, bursting with exotic, fresh Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavors you are going crave! I guarantee they are going to become a lunch and dinner favorite AND they are fabulous for meal prep! These rice bowls are loaded with your choice of Greek chicken or chicken shawarma (or go vegetarian), rice, lettuce, roasted veggies then piled high with your choice of toppings such has pickled red onions, cucumber salad, feta, almonds, avocados and hummus, all drizzled with Cilantro Yogurt Sauce. The combination is nothing short of mesmerizing. I can’t wait for you to fall in love with these rice bowls too!
