Enjoy a healthy and refreshing Vegan Buddha Bowl filled with quinoa, zucchini, broccoli, spinach and a creamy avocado sauce. You could also add chickpeas, beans, fish, meat or fresh herbs. There is no rules when it comes to buddha bowls, create your own!
A buddha bowl is similar to a salad but with more ingredients so you get a complete meal all in one bowl. It is a very easy & quick to make, the perfect homemade take away to go to work or to go on a picnic. This green buddha bowl is vegan, gluten free and dairy free. Find below what each ingredient adds to this one-bowl dish:
Carbs: quinoa (gluten free).
Proteins: quinoa and hemp seeds.
Vitamins, minerals, water: broccoli, zucchini, cucumber, edamame and spinach.
Healthy Fats: avocado, olive oil, hemp seeds.
The key to make a healthy buddha bowl is to add each ingredient in the right proportion. Add as many greens as you want, add the right amount of carbs for you and keep an eye on the portion of fish and meat if you include them in the bowl.
Don’t forget to drrizzle your vegan buddha bowl with the avocado sauce because it combines all the flavours adding a nice creaminess to it. I also use this sauce with pasta salads and it works great.
