If you’re in need of a quick lunch or dinner, post-gym sweat sess or busy work day, a burrito bowl always has your back. Pre-cooked rice (or even instant rice) gets a flavor boost from cilantro and limes, and then you can add your favorite burrito-inspired toppings. To take it to the next level, try seasoning your own tofu for a protein boost.

  • 3 cups cooked rice
