The Buddha Bowl, so called because of its Asian origins as a 1-bowl vegetarian meal is a popular go-to in my kitchen. Filling and delicious, there are almost endless variations – vegan, vegetarian, and with meat – that always leave you feeling healthy. With a side of pickled vegetables, sauerkraut, or kimchi you’ve got all the ingredients for sustained energy with a healthy veggie dose.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked brown, pink, black or “forbidden” (yes that’s really what it’s called!) rice or 1 serving 100% buckwheat soba or organic rice noodles
  • 2 cups mixed steamed broccoli and carrots (cut into slices)
  • Vegan: ½ cup cooked canned garbanzos or adzuki beans
  • Paleo: 4-6 oz. baked teriyaki or simple grilled salmon or 4-6 oz. satay chicken or 4 oz. satay beef

Prepare the above ingredients separately and layer into the bowl in the order listed.

  • Drizzle with 2-4 TBS  tahini sauce.  To prepare the tahini sauce: Blend 1⁄4 cup tahini, 1 clove crushed garlic,  2 TBS fresh lemon juice or organic rice vinegar, ¼ tsp good quality salt, and 2 tbsp. water. Optionally use gluten free tamari or coconut aminos instead of salt, and for extra yum add 2 TSP maple syrup to the blender. 
  • Optionally, top with a few tablespoons of chopped cilantro and chopped scallions.

Serves 1 but can be doubled or more for feeding friends and family. 

Prep time: 25 minutes
