Deli Rice Bowl

If you’re craving an easy and tasty rice bowl version of a mouth-watering sandwich, we have just the thing! All it takes is a quick trip to your supermarket deli and you’ll have everything you need for this Monte Cristo Rice Bowl. Much like we did in our Loaded Smoked Salmon Rice Bowl, made with everything bagel seasoning mix, we’ve swapped out the bread here for our whole grain brown rice and quinoa. This protein-packed blend will keep you feeling energized and satisfied for longer. Not to mention, it’s easy to pack in a lunch bag or briefcase to take with you on the go.

Once you have your deli turkey, ham and sliced cheese, all you need to do is toss this salad together with fresh arugula and store-bought Dijonnaise sauce, and lunch is served!
