What is a Buddha bowl?

Buddha bowls are really just poke bowls without the meat, and they consist primarily of vegetables - both raw and cooked. It is meant to be vegetarian, but I couldn't resist myself from adding in eggs because I am a sucker for golden, runny yolks and the sheer creaminess of the whites when slightly and perfectly underdone.

Easy Homemade Buddha Bowl Recipes

First, start with a base of nutrient-rich grains like quinoa, brown rice, or farro. These will provide a solid foundation for your bowl and keep you feeling full and satisfied.

Next, add a variety of fresh and colourful vegetables, such as leafy greens, roasted sweet potatoes, or sautéed mushrooms. Not only do these add flavour and texture to your bowl, they're also packed with vitamins and minerals that will nourish your body.

Third, include a source of protein, such as grilled chicken, tofu, or chickpeas. This will give your Buddha bowl staying power and help you feel full and energized throughout the day.

Finally, top it all off with a delicious and flavourful dressing. Whether you prefer a tangy vinaigrette, a creamy tahini sauce, or a spicy peanut dressing, the right sauce can take your Buddha bowl to the next level and make it a truly unforgettable meal.

So why not give the Buddha bowl a try? With its easy preparation and endless customization options, it's the perfect meal for anyone looking to eat healthy and delicious food without sacrificing flavour or convenience.

Pick and match any of the following components and you will be able to shower your appetite with the delightful flavours from a bowl loaded with nurturing goodness your body will absolutely love!
