Shrimp and veggie bowl (or burrito)

Darci Juris


This is one of those "what do I have in my frig that I can make" dinner bowls. Trying to eat A LOT more veggies, I came up with this bowl of everything that sounded yummy. This bowl also makes a great burrito as well. Wrap all ingredients in a large flour tortilla instead.

How to Make Shrimp and veggie bowl (or burrito)


  1. Preheat grill. Wash vegetables, and peel potato.
  2. Slice zucchini and sweet potatove into long slices, about 1/4 inch thick. Spray with cooking oil, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Slice bell pepper into thirds, removing the core/seeds. Spray with cooking oil and set aside.
  4. Slice onions, and either saute them on the stove, or grill them with the rest of the veggies. I actually decided to caramelize mine in a pan.
  5. Prep shrimp how you prefer. You can either grill them with the veggies, or saute them in a pan. I actually bought pre-cooked shrimp from the Sprouts Grocery.
  6. Grill veggies (and shrimp) until done (about 5 min each side).
  7. Divide grilled veggies, shrimp, onion, spinach, beets, beans and rice between 2 serving bowls.
  8. Drizzle a teaspoon of balsamic glaze on top, and add about 2 tablespoons hummus.
