Buddha Bowls

So you've seen grain bowls, veggie bowls, rice bowls, and maybe even some Buddha Bowls. So, WTF, right? A Buddha Bowl is a mix of a bunch of different vegetables, nuts, seeds, proteins, greens, grains, etc. Essentially, whatever you're craving - add it on in.

I've been on a Buddha Bowl kick lately, as it's such a good way to get a large number of vegetables (win), allows for creativity in flavors (win), and provides bomb leftovers for the week (WIN). There is no right way to make one, so I've listed my favorite ingredients below:

BASE: 

  • Wheat Berries
  • Black/Forbidden/Brown Rice
  • Sautéed Greens

VEGETABLES:

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Winter Squash (butternut, delicata, acorn, etc.)
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions (pickled or caramelized are my go-to!)
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage
  • Turnips
  • Radishes
  • Honestly, anything you're craving! 

SAUCES

  • Pesto 
  • Garlic Cashew Sauce
  • Lemon Vinaigrette
  • Chimichurri
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette

Top with any seeds or nuts you have, and you're good to go! What are your fave flavor combos? 

Enjoy!
