Buddha bowls are my easiest go-to meal when it’s time to clean the fridge out. Especially in these crazy times, I don’t want to waste any of the food we have so I will make what I’ve got work for me. I also love that it’s easy to omit or change the ingredients around to suit any picky eaters without having to completely cook a separate meal.
To make a bowl:
Step 1: choose a grain (quinoa, bulgur, cous cous , wild rice etc)
Step2: Assess the veg situation. Most veg I have on hand usually roast beautifully so I like to whack it all on a tray with garlic cloves, quartered onions and herbs if I’ve got them. Some veg might be better raw or maybe even pickled in a light vinegar and sugar mix.
Step 3: Potentially add a protein like tofu, seitan or frozen nuggets of any variety
Step 4: optional hummus, baba ganoush or any other dip I might have
Step 5: Add any of the optional ingredients if I have them: seeds, seaweed, nuts, fried shallots, avocado
Step 6: Make an amazing dressing. I love a tahini, teriyaki or miso dressing. This eve, I opted for a peanut butter, fresh lime juice, soy sauce and maple syrup combo that was the nuts!
