Simple Teriyaki Veggie Bowl

PUBLISHED: 6.7.2018

Dinner is solved with this quick + simple teriyaki bowl. It’s bursting with flavor, yet a dish the whole family will enjoy.


Simple Green Veggie Bowls with Teriyaki Flavors

Prepare to have the first bite of our Teriyaki Veggie Bowls transport you to a Hawaiian vacation with palm trees swaying, waves crashing and pineapple growing like weeds. At least that what I think of when I made this the very first time.

Between the coconut rice, the grilled veggies and the sweet pineapple there is not way this veggie bowl will be left uneaten. Kids, husbands and more will devour this nutrient packed bowl before I can say Plant Power! Depending on how adventurous your family is you can remove the crushed peppers and keep it more mild— yet I like to kick up the heat.

This recipe is just one of the 200+ vegetarian recipes from our Rawk the Year meal planner. To help solve the question of “what’s for dinner” I’ve created a plant based meal planner with weekly meal plans + quarterly cleanses to take the guesswork out of good, clean meals. This has been a sanity savor in my house during the summer… and my desire to still eat well in between the ice cream sandwiches and snow cones.

Say hello to summer with these Hawaiian veggie bowls! Roasted vegetables over coconut rice make for a quick and nutrient dense meal that the whole family will love.




  • Coconut oil, for greasing pan
  • 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large bell pepper, cut into 1” chunks
  • 1 small yellow onion, cut into 1” chunks
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 1⁄2 cup green onions, thinly sliced, for serving



  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 14 ounce can light coconut milk
  • 1⁄4 cup water
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt



  1.  In a 4-quart pan with tight-fitting lid, heat coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the rice to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly to toast the rice until the grains are opaque.
  3. Lower heat, as needed, to prevent rice from burning or browning.
  4. Add the coconut milk, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer, and cover pan with the lid.
  5. Cook for 15-20 minutes, then remove from the heat. Let stand for 5-10 minutes, then fluff with a fork.


  1. While rice is cooking, preheat oven broiler to high. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with oil. Set aside.
  2. Combine soy sauce, honey, ginger, and garlic. Place the broccoli, onion, and red bell pepper in a bowl.
  3. Toss with half of the sauce, saving the other half to drizzle on bowl when serving.
  4. Place the veggies on the prepared baking sheet. Broil for 5-7 minutes, or until they start to brown on the edges and the broccoli is tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Remove from oven.
  5. Divide the coconut rice between four bowls and top with an equal amount of roasted veggies, 1⁄2 cup each of fresh pineapple, and a sprinkle of green onions. Drizzle with a little of the remaining teriyaki sauce and eat while hot.

    Haven’t tried it yet but I am a diabetic, can I use cauliflower rice?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Yes, absolutely! I’ve made coconut rice using cauliflower rice and it’s just as delicious. Enjoy!

  2. Sheila says:

    AMAZING!!! This was sooooo great! Everyone must try this yummy recipe! I made extra sauce and cooked some chicken in it for my boyfriend (not me). He said it was so good he was surprised it was homemade sauce. I won’t buy store bought teriyaki sauce again. Thank you for teaching me how to make it. Loved it!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Yay!!! That is so awesome!!! It’s it crazy how delicious it is?!?! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Pat says:

    Allergic to pineapple. :~( Any suggestions for a substitute? Someone once suggested oranges.

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Pat,

      Yes you can substitute pineapple with oranges, mangoes, and peaches.

      Hope that helps!

  4. Laura B says:

    I haven’t made this yet but hope to soon! Am I able to combine all ingredients listed for rice (coconut oil, coconut milk, rice, water, salt) in a rice cooker? Many thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Laura,

      Yes, you should be able to add all of that into your rice cooker!


  5. Christina says:

    I haven’t made this but definitely want to try it! I am really into grain/rice bowls right now. This looks awesome. I”m super sad I pre-ordered your book from Amazon and it was supposed to arrive yesterday and it’s lost. They said if it doesn’t turn up by Sunday to contact them but I”m going on vacation next week and won’t be home 🙁 Also, when I ordered your smoothie book from them it got lost and I finally cancelled my order! Here’s to hoping they find it before my trip!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      OH no that makes me so sad!! I am so sorry to hear that it was lost. Hopefully they will be able to send another one out before you have to leave!!

  6. Anne D says:

    Just curious, why white rice as opposed to brown rice?

  7. Mary Beth says:

    I made it and devoured it! I am only rating it 4 stars becauase I did not use the recipe for Teriyaki and so can’t comment on that. I had some homemade teriyaki sauce and homemade marinade from another dish to use. The coconut rice was awesome! Added carrots to the roasted veggies…..this dish has lotsa options to explore more. Recommend!

  8. Erin says:

    This looks delicious! Would other vegetables work for this, other than peppers and onions? I was thinking carrots and cauliflower…

  9. Mari says:

    This looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it. Keep them recipes coming. Thanks.

    • Jen Hansard says:

      Awwww! Thanks Mari! I’ll make sure to keep sharing new recipe creations! Appreciate the support. xoxox
