This Fiesta Bowl is so delicious! Although nothing about it says “Mexican cuisine” aside from the smokiness for the tahini sauce and the avocado. I called it a Fiesta Bowl because, with all the vibrant ingredients, it reminded me of a fiesta but at its core, it’s a vibrant, better-for-you burrito bowl.
The best part about this bowl is that it’s grain-free since it features RiceRice, gluten-free, soy-free, and plant-based. So, whether you have dietary restrictions or are just looking for a healthier option, this fiesta bowl is perfect for you! And trust me, even though it’s packed with nutrients, it doesn’t sacrifice flavor. So go ahead and enjoy!
