A complete dish packed with vitamins, the Buddha Bowl is the new trend in the culinary world. Composed of cereals, vegetables, fruits and proteins, it is as good as beautiful and can be prepared according to your desires. Here’s a recipe by Anoushka Aodhorah from PeachyTales.

Ingredients (for 2 persons)

– For the base: ½ cup of cereals or starch-containing food (brown rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, sweet potato, whole pasta)

 – For the vegetables: 1 to 2 cups (lettuce leaf, arugula, kale, watercress, cabbage, pepper, beetroot, bok choy)

– For proteins: ½ cup of chicken or meat, grains (red or white kidney beans), fish, boiled eggs, mushrooms, shrimp or other seafood.

– For the sauce: some avocado, lemon juice, walnuts, chia seeds, pressed virgin coconut oil vinaigrette, sesame seeds. 

Preparation

In a pan, stir fry your favourite vegetables and meat. Lay them in layers according to the ingredients’ list order. Finish with a dash of sauce. Serve.

Good to know

The Buddha Bowl was initially intended for vegetarians and vegans but it soon attracted a wider audience in search of “better eating”. Besides being healthy, the presentation of the dish is one of the reasons why it appeals to many. The delectable small portions of the Buddha Bowl can be prepared in a jiffy with what one has the fridge or at hand! However, seasonal and organic products are preferred. The cooking methods vary: raw, steamed, oven-roasted or pickled. We absolutely love it!
