This week was rice bowl week! However, this was the best one yet. The combination of hot habaneros and sour rice wine vinegar are a match for success. Not to mention the bright colors to get any mouth watering. It's quick, it's easy, and it's delicious. What else could you ask for?
But get creative! Use marinated steak or tofu for a different protein. Or add sesame oil for a smooth umami flavor. No matter what you do, give it a try, and eat your heart out.
