If you want to swap in different proteins use roast chicken, turkey, salmon, hard boiled eggs or even tofu for a vegetarian option.
Rice salads and bowls are great for using up any leftover rice from a previous meal. Or, if you know you’ll be short on time, simply prepare your rice ahead of time, store in the refrigerator and whip out when ready to toss together.
They are also great for exploring other international flavors! Switch things up by making a base of Mexican chicken and rice or an Asian-style sushi rice bowl.
Substitute salmon or leftover shredded chicken for tuna if desired.
