Shrimp Bento Bowl
These shrimp bento bowls have delightful flavor and are quick and easy to put together. The brown rice and vegetables provide healthful fiber and the shrimp is an excellent source of protein. These bento bowls are also adaptable because you can use chicken in place of shrimp and any vegetables you may have on hand. Save time and make a pot of brown rice ahead of time to quickly assemble the bowl when you are ready to eat.
