Happy Monday! ☀️
Buddha bowls have easily become one of my favourite meals to make this summer. Buddha bowls are packed full of nutrients, are easy to make, and incorporate ingredients you have on hand. 🙌🏼
The basic buddha bowl includes a grain (ex. rice, quinoa, barley, bulgur, corn), a green, (ex. spinach, kale, broccoli, or any other veggie) and a bean (often vegetarian so you could use chickpeas, black beans, lentils, tofu, etc.). Because of this combination, you’re getting a bowl full of complete plant-based proteins – all of the essential amino acids that your body can’t make alone. 🤩
There is no wrong way to build a buddha bowl…pretty much everything goes! Simply combine the ingredients and add in some flavour boosters like herbs, avocado, cheese, and a simple dressing. While I make several different versions of buddha bowls, this is by far my favourite combination! The ingredients are simple and can be tweaked to your liking.
★ sweet potato
★ red bell pepper
★ air fried tofu cubes
★ black rice
★ topped with a homemade tahini dressing & black sesame seeds
✨TIP: Prep all of these ingredients ahead of time for easy meals throughout the week. This makes it easier to whip up a quick meal for dinner, or pack a lunch in the morning!
