A Buddha Bowl is typically a meal served in a bowl, that features greens, grains and proteins - and of course a sauce or dressing on the side.
Let's start with your favorite grains, think rice, quinoa, noodles or even pasta. You can even use whatever you have on hand, in your pantry. Cook accordingly to the instructions, and scoop it into your bowl. Level the surface so you can begin to add your toppings.
Next, add in your greens. You can get creative here, any green salad or veggie will fit here, or simply use your fave salad mix, but we like to use Aero Farm’s Baby Bok Choy. It is fresh and organic, and sustainably grown in vertical farms.
For those willing, you can also add some veggies. You can use cooked veggies like pumpkin and sweet potatoes, or you can also use raw chopped veggies like capsicums and carrots. In this bowl, we used roasted pumpkin and onions, and raw carrots.
Next, choose your plant protein and dressing/sauce. There are plenty of store-bought options available right now, but we definitely recommend choosing whole food, minimally processed proteins like tofu, chickpeas and tempeh - rather than imitation meats. In this bowl, we have used roasted chickpeas. Add that on top of your bowl along with dressing or sauce of choice. In this bowl, we've opted for a simple tahini dressing that will compliment the flavor of each ingredient.
Drizzle that on top, then dig in and enjoy!
Here is the complete ingredients and instructions for this bowl. If you want to make this at home.
