(Build your Own) Buddha Bowl

 

When I first became a vegetarian (pescatarian) I was very unsure about what meals to prepare. I wanted to include more fruits and veggies into my diet, I just wasn’t sure what to make or what to buy at the grocery store. I started on Pinterest creating a board with easy vegetarian recipes. Simple recipes that I could quickly put together. Thats when I found a bunch of recipes for “buddha bowls”, the recipes seemed simple enough so I thought I’d give it a try and share my results. The fun thing about these bowls are that you can throw together any combination of greens, carbs, and protein to get a yummy and satisfying meal!

Add some protein. I’m using tofu, but feel free to use any other source of protein you desire.

 And finally add some extras and your toppings. I used avocado and sprinkled some chia seeds. Also adding some fresh parsley or cilantro gives it a great taste.

  1. Nia,
    I absolutely love the site. Informative for the young and elder alike. The photography looks like pages out of Home & Garden magazine. Look forward to seeing a winter theme.
