Create your own better-than-takeout rice bowl at home. Juicy ginger beef, hardboiled eggs and all the veggies are nice and cozy atop this hearty bowl.


  • 1 cup purple rice, rinsed

  • 2 tbsp sodium-reduced soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 2 tsp vegetable oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tbsp freshly grated or minced ginger

  • 450 g lean ground beef

  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tsp sesame oil, optional

  • 4 medium-boiled eggs, halved, or fried eggs

  • 2 cups shredded carrot

  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced

  • 4 cocktail tomatoes, quartered

  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds, optional


  • Cook rice following package directions, about 20 min. Let stand for 5 min.

  • In a small bowl, whisk soy sauce, honey and ¼ cup water. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add onion and cook until soft, about 3 min. Stir in garlic, ginger and beef; stir-fry until no pink remains, about 5 min. Stir in soy sauce mixture and stir-fry for 3 min more. Stir in green onions, and sesame oil, if desired, then transfer to a plate.

  • Divide rice among four bowls. Top with beef mixture, 1 egg, carrot, radish, tomatoes and sesame seeds, if desired.
