Rice Egg Bowl. This breakfast dish is appealing because it is dead simple. Chop up some vegetables and scoop some rice into a bowl of beaten eggs. Pop it in the microwave. And out… comes a hot, sizzling breakfast! Better yet, throw some cheese on top and you start the day saying “OMG…”
What does this rice egg bowl taste like?
Think about a cheesy breakfast risotto. And it won’t be far off from the actual taste.
For ingredients, no need to stick to the script. Use whatever leftovers you see in the refrigerator. Broccoli florettes, finely diced onions and/or bell peppers would work perfectly.
The key taste variable to this dish is the cheese. I used a combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheese. Pretty boring no? Haha – if you have a wider variety of cheese at your local market, feel free to experiment 🙂
Also, if you have Kimchi in the fridge, bring it out for this dish. The Kimchi does a good job in cutting through the heaviness of melted cheese and refreshing your palate.
Bon Appetit ya’ll. Keep on saving the world 🤟
