And the grain element in this Shrimp Rice Bowl Recipe is amazing! I used Village Harvest’s Antioxidant blend, which is perfect for grain bowls like this one.

This blend has a rich black color, containing three unique mixes of gluten free black rice and nutritious grains – black quinoa and black lentils.

Grain bowls are some of my favorite things to make for lunch and dinner these days. They are so simple to prepare and you can use various kinds of grains, protein, veggies, nuts, seeds and sauces.

Since summer is so short and has to be enjoyed, I don’t really want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen. This is why I try to make easy, tasty and light summertime dishes, that don’t require a lot of time, but are packed with nutritious ingredients.

I’m lucky that my husband also likes these and also provides some ideas of what kind of ingredients to combine in my creations.

This Shrimp Rice Bowl Recipe is also perfect for meal prepping/planning. I’ve always loved the idea of meal planning. I’ve done it on and off through the years. I got more serious about planning our meals recently, right after our son was born.

There are some days, when I just don’t have time to even make a quick salad or a sandwich. That’s when a quick grain bowl, that I can make in 5 minutes comes handy. I say 5 minutes, but let’s assume that you’ve prepared your grains, shrimp and potatoes in advance and are storing them in the fridge.

For the grains in this Shrimp Rice Bowl Recipe I used Ancient Harvest’s Organic, Gluten Free Antioxidant blend. It contains black rice, which I love. This is the first time I tried black quinoa and black lentils and they taste delicious. Love the black color of this antioxidant blend.

For this Shrimp Rice Bowl Recipe:

  • I roasted the sweet potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • I seared the shrimp on the stove top. You can grill it instead, but since the shrimp that I had was on the smaller side, I decided to just cook it in a pan on the stove top.
  • I used sliced avocado, but if you have the time to make guacamole, it will be even better!
  • The Village Harvest Antioxidant blend cooks relatively quickly. Just make sure you follow the instructions on the package.
  • Topped with crunchy pumpkin seeds (optional)
