Broccoli Bowls with Sriracha Teriyaki Sauce Easy Vegetarian RecipeI had a lot of broccoli to use up, so Jimmy requested something like steamed broccoli with rice and soy sauce. I decided to take that to another level and make these exciting bowls of fun! You can prepare all the ingredients while your rice is cooking. Within a half hour, you have a bowl of spicy deliciousness (and healthiness)! Jimmy LOVED this! What really makes this meal is the sauce! We will likely use this sauce for a weekend dish (such as grilled chicken teriyaki). This is an easy vegetarian recipe that only takes 30 minutes from start to finish!

Bowl Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of brown rice (uncooked)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 red pepper cut in medium-sized strips
  • ½ Vidalia onion (or yellow onion) cut in medium-sized strips
  • Olive oil
  • 3 green onions chopped
Sriracha Teriyaki Ingredients:
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • ½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 T ginger grated
  • 1 T rice wine vinegar
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 ½ T corn starch
  • 1 teas sriracha sauce
  1. Begin with rice:
  • Cook brown rice according to package directions (the brand I used took ½ hour)
  1. Prepare teriyaki sauce:
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, water, ginger, vinegar, brown sugar, corn starch and sriracha
  • With about 1 teas. olive oil, over medium heat, sauté garlic in a small sauce pan for 2 minutes
  • Add contents of mixing bowl to pan and bring to boil
  • Reduce heat (be sure to stir while it is reducing) and let simmer on low (stir occasionally) until ready to use
  1. Prepare peppers and onions:
  • With about 1 T olive oil, in sauté pan over medium high heat, sauté peppers and onions for 5 minutes, then reduce to low to keep warm until ready to use
  1. Prepare broccoli:
  • In a medium sauce pan/pot – fill up to an inch of water and bring to boil
  • Place broccoli in a steamer basket and place on top of the pan and cover, steam for 7 minutes. Note – steamer basket should be above the water, not submerged in water.
  1. Assemble / Serve:
  • When everything finishes – assemble / portion into bowls, placing rice on the bottom, and broccoli and pepper/onion mix on top
  • Drizzle teriyaki sauce (about 2 T per bowl – or more/less to taste) over top and garnish with green onions


  • This makes 2 big servings or 3 mid-sized servings.
  • A little of the sauce goes a long way, so you will have extra sauce; you can save it for the weekend for chicken teriyaki, or use it as a dip for dumplings or other veggies.
  • If you do not like spicy, you can reduce or leave out sriracha.
