One of my favourite dishes is a Buddha Bowl and I always relied on my favourite Vegan restaurant to prepare it for me, and it was perfection! These days I’m stocking up and always have my kitchen stocked with a variety of quality ingredients. This is the perfect place to create a Buddha Bowl.
I took the dive and created my very own Buddha Bowl and it was delicious! You too can create a delightful and simple meal simply by exploring your pantry and fridge and here’s a hint, fresh leftovers work perfectly. Vegetables, grains, proteins and a sauce are what it needs to create Nirvana in a bowl.
The beauty lies in the fact that each bowl is unique, it depends on your taste, and what you have on hand!
Enjoy experimenting, land remember, leftover cooked veg or grains or proteins are a great addition.
