My favorite, simple go-to lunch/dinner that is amazing on its own, but feel free to add in some protein too! So many options!  Kid-friendly and perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner!


  • 11 1/2 cups cooked long grain brown rice
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Cook brown rice according to package instructions (click here for Instant Pot Brown Jasmine Rice Recipe!).
  2. Place your desired amount of brown rice in a bowl.
  3. Cube an entire avocado and place on top of the brown rice.
  4. Sprinkle with ground black pepper and drizzle with your desired amount of soy sauce or coconut aminos.
  5. Enjoy!
  6. See Notes for additional protein options.


  • Brown rice: I generally use this brown rice, but of course any type of rice will work!
  • Avocado storage tip: I go through a lot of avocados! I usually buy them under-ripe and then when they are JUST starting to feel a tiny bit soft (like you can barley make any sort of imprint with your finger) I move them to the crisper in the fridge and store them there.  They stay ripe for nearly a week!
  • Other topping ideas: red pepper flakes, Siracha, Frank’s Red Hot, other hot sauces
  • Protein Additions: fried egg, poached egg, sautéed shrimp, chicken, edamame, roasted broccoli
