HOW TO MAKE A QUICK AND SIMPLE BUDDHA BOWL (VEGAN + GLUTEN FREE + SOY FREE)

BUDDHA BOWL (VEGAN + GLUTEN FREE + SOY FREE)

What is a Buddha bowl even, really?

Martha Stewart Living offers this clue in her book Meatless… written in 2013, it’s one of the earliest Buddha bowl references in print… “With whole grains, plant proteins, and vegetables, this is the ideal vegan one-bowl dish” … “It’s more of a general formula than a hard-and-fast recipe, since you can swap out different ingredients for variety and to make use of whatever you have on hand.”

Rachel Tepper Paley, HEALTHYISH

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:
