Want to Eat More Veg = Learn How to Buddha Bowl

Summer is long gone... and cold green salads are not appealing, but these gorgeous Buddha bowls are amazing.

 

According to the Urban Dictionary, a Buddha Bowl is…

(n). a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded "belly" appearance on the top much like the belly of a Buddha ;-)

Wikipedia speaks about the Buddha Bowl being the largest in a set and containing the wisdom of Buddha and… his head. Ummm yeah.

Whatever you believe, this new foodie trend is a gorgeous way to get your 5 in a day. You see there was a time in the past when I didn’t know how to prepare vegetables and they would often become waterlogged mess of yuck on a plate. This brings vegetable eating to a whole new level.

The 3-keys to Creating a Buddha Bowl

1. Variety of Ingredients

2. Rainbow Colors

3. Magical Sauce

One should take the different ingredients and assemble colorfully in a bowl… then add sauce on top. Ideally the dish should be a tribute to vegetarian living, but many people add a bit of meat or fish to the dish to make it feel more solid for them.

TIPS:

1)    It’s a great way to use up leftovers in your fridge and fruit/veg hanging around. Try new combos to see what works well together and make it as beautiful as possible.

2)    It’s also fun to take a few bits and bobs out of the freezer to prepare your bowl quite quickly. e.g. peas or broccoli bites

Are you inspired to get more vegetables in your body?
