We shared the Sweet Potato Bowl as the recipe for last week and we so loved it (made it three times during the week!) that we wanted to figure out a way to make it as a Quick & Easy recipe so we could walk in the door and be eating it in 15 minutes. And we did it!
The only thing you need to have prepared ahead of time is cooked grain. And we've shared before what we do so we always have some grain ready to go in the fridge. We make a big batch of grain, put a few days worth in a tub in the fridge and freeze the rest in 1/2 cup portions.
Then, when we've eaten what's in the tub, we just bring a couple of servings out from the freezer and let them thaw in the fridge, ready to go if we want to make this dish or a buddha bowl or have it with fruit for breakfast. Quick & Easy.

Add the rice, raisins and beans to a small pan and heat, if you’d like it heated, while you prep the veggies.
Once the veggies are prepped and the rice and beans warm, add the rice and bean mixture to the bowls and top with the scallions, red pepper, jalapeño (if using it), spinach or arugula, mango, avocado, lime juice, Braggs or tamari, salsa and pepper.
Serve and enjoy.
