Maybe it's using up the random leftover ingredients in your fridge. Or maybe it's borrowing inspiration from other cuisines.

For example, make a Middle Eastern-inspired bowl by adding za'atar, eggplant, chickpeas, and lamb. Or try a Chinese-inspired version with peppercorns and snow peas.

Whichever flavors you prefer, here's what you need to make a perfect bowl:

2. Vegetables

Cook your vegetables to your preference: You can lightly sauté them in olive oil, blanch them, steam them, roast them, or even leave them raw.

Some ideas: Soy sauce-glazed snap peas, grilled shiitake mushrooms, sesame carrots, thinly sliced bell peppers, raw zucchini ribbons, cucumber matchsticks.

3. Protein

Thinly sliced steak, cubed lamb, pulled pork, or even shredded rotisserie chicken are excellent options. Plan to cook it before it gets mixed with the other components.

4. Toppings

Bean sprouts, sesame seeds, or shredded dried seaweed work if you are going with Asian flavors. Drizzle some sesame oil and hot sauce over the top before serving.
