Defined as ‘a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded “belly” appearance on the top, much like the belly of a buddha’, buddha bowls might sound like just another food fad.
But not at all. Because if the term is new, the concept (a random bunch of delicious veggies, thrown together in a bowl and topped with all sorts of creamy n’ crunchy treats) really isn’t.
Packed full of nutrients, buddha bowls make for super satisfying, healthy meals.
They’re super easy to adapt to any diet (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy-free) without feeling like you have to compromise. And they only take a few minutes to put together.
As a result, they’re my packed lunch of choice.
I’ve tried quite a few variations of the ol’ grain + greens + veg + sauce combo, and this quinoa & sweet potato vegan buddha bowl is simply the best (yes, even better than this bad boy!).
As it just so happen, this baby is good for you, nutritious, vegan and gluten-free.
But because it’s packed full of colours, flavours and textures and soooooo satisfying, you won’t even notice it!
Just my kind of superbowl!
