Super easy lunch bowl

Super easy lunch bowl

Yesterday, I had the most wonderful, healthy lunch and I just had to share it with you! So hereby, let’s dive into this super easy lunch bowl recipe!

The bowl needs per one person:

  • One portion of white rice
  • 1/2 avocado
  • A handful of shrimps
  • 10 cherry tomato’s
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika powder

Put the ingredients together

This recipe can be made so easily in just a few minutes. You cook the rice in line with the instructions on the packaging. After it’s cooked, quickly rinse it with cold water to make it somewhat more fluffier.

Whilst that is cooking, prepare the shrimps. It differs per shrimp what you need to do, I only needed to remove the tails. I heated up some olive oil and cooked the shrimps on high heat. When they’re cooked about half way through, add the paprika and garlic powder and make sure all shrimps are equally seasoned.

You can also cut the avocado and tomatoes in advance. When the rice and shrimps are ready, you can add everything in the bowl and you’re ready to serve! Pro tip: If you like it a little more creamy, add a teaspoon of Hellmans’ mayonnaise.

Special dietary needs

Following a diet or allergic to ingredients? It’s super easy to switch these ingredients out for others. Are you doing the ketogenic diet or at least low carb? Switch the rice out for cauliflower rice! Are you doing a low fat diet? Switch the mayonnaise for soy sauce, the shrimps for chicken and the avocado for paprika or cucumber. Be aware that fatty ingredients add more calories, so take a little bit more rice when you leave out fatty ingredients to make it filling as well. For the vegetarian or vegan diet, you can also use soy sauce and vegan crispy chicken sticks or a whole avocado and some walnuts instead.
