What is a Buddha bowl even, really?
Typically you start off with a grain, add some vegetables, some form of plant based protein, and a dressing of your choice. Optionally you can add seeds, fermented or pickled vegetables, and sprouts. Voilà you have a Buddha bowl.
Because of the combination of grains, green vegetables and beans you’re getting a bowl full of complete proteins. You also getting a host of macro and micro nutrients too. The below formula is for one bowl but its easily multiplied for multiple people or servings.
Below isn’t a typical step by step recipe, more of a outline to your very own perfect bowl:
