Morning Rice Bowls

Rice Bowls With Eggs

Eggs are a breakfast favorite as they are a simple protein that will leave you feeling full and energized for hours after eating them. Try this Turmeric Breakfast Rice Bowl topped with pumpkin seeds if you’re a soft boiled egg fan. 

On the other hand, if you prefer hard boiled eggs then you can also make this air fried Empanada Rice Bowl with Carolina® Jasmine Rice. To make this rice bowl even more filling, try adding in some shredded tortilla strips as well.


If you are more of a fried egg person in the mornings, you’ll enjoy this Morning Power Rice Bowl made with Carolina® Parboiled Rice. Try this rice bowl with some enchilada sauce and cheese on top for some added flavor. 

Fruity Rice Bowls

Fruit goes very well into breakfast rice bowls like this energy packed Mexican Breakfast Basmati Rice and Bananas

Note: Riper bananas will give off a sweeter taste than less mature bananas. 

For a breakfast bowl that is packed full of fruit, try one of these Jasmine Rice & Quinoa Breakfast Bowls With Tropical Fruit. You may not have any chia seeds in the pantry, but they can be substituted with roasted cashews instead.


For an energizing morning recipe made with Carolina® Brown Rice, learn how to make this  Nature’s Cereal Brown Rice Bowl.
