So, what is a Buddha Bowl?
The bowl will remind you of the Buddha’s well-rounded belly. It’ll leave you happy and satiated, hence the name. It’s also known as a Nourishment Bowl because it covers your nutritional needs so well. You can make it just the way you like, whether warm or cold, with peppers or cucumber… – just let your creativity run wild as you prepare your Bowl.
The basic recipe
There are several parts to a Buddha Bowl. It all starts with greens. There are a number of different types you can use like rocket, lamb’s lettuce, or any other variety that takes your fancy. Choose just what you want to put in your Bowl! Then, add some healthy grains or complex carbohydrates like, e.g., sweet potatoes, millet, sweetcorn, or quinoa. And what else do you absolutely need? Right! Veggies! So, just pop your favourites into the mix and prepare them however you fancy: warm or cold, cooked, fried, or raw. Another important component: protein. We use Veganz Soy Medallions for our recipe and we pop them in a pan and fry them until they’re crispy. Alternatively, you can also use lentils, tofu, and the like. For some healthy fat, add nuts or avocado, for example. Finish off with toppings of your choice and, voilà, your Buddha Bowl is ready!
