Buddha bowls have been lately getting so much attention!
They are filled with tons of fresh natural ingredients and just simply are so colourful, like eating a rainbow #eattherainbow. Not to mention, they are usually filled with lots of healthy ingredients and can be so nutritious.
Favourite Buddha Bowl Account
Here is an Instagram Account that inspires me with all their creative Plant-Based Buddha Bowls! Definitely follow @buddha_bowls to get inspired.
When I have lots of various greens at home, I opt for making large salad bowls that usually turn into delicious buddha bowls!
What’s in my bowl ??😋
A simple bowl filled with lots of my favourite greens and herbs, vegan protein aka sprouted tofu and lots of healthy fats!
Build your own bowl…
- lots of green lettuce
- chopped fresh parsley
- chopped fresh fenugreek
- cauliflower rice
To make your own Cauliflower Rice: purchase a cauliflower head. Cut into small florets. Place into a food processor. Process for about 2 minutes, or until the consistency has turned into rice. Optional: You may boil your cauliflower rice for 3 minutes to soften! Be careful for it not to over bowl, unless you want mashed cauliflower. Still is very delcious like mash potatoes.
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 block sprouted firm tofu, cubed and marinated (to marinate your tofu: rinse the tofu and let sit in luke warm water for about 10 minutes. Rinse and drain. In a cup place 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 2 tbsp organic mustard (make sure all ingredients in the mustard are pure!Mix together and massage into the diced tofu. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes. The longer the better.)
- 1/2 large avocado, diced or sliced
- Sprinkled some dried oregano, paprika, basil and @traderjoes everything seasoning (black and white sesame seeds with salt). Also, added some @bragglivefoodproducts ACV, olive oil, and coconut cream for the dressing!
Why I add Herbs to my Bowl?
Adding fresh parsley and fenugreek, adds a lot of real natural flavour to your salad! It makes it taste so fresh and adds so much beneficial nutrients to your bowl and aids in your body immune detox.
Fenugreek: when eating raw, helps with heartburn, keeping cholesterol levels in check, lowering blood sugar, boosting testosterone, and helping with appetite control.
Parsley: when eating raw or juicing, it helps to detox, help build the immune system and helps with inflammation within the body, amazing for kidney filtration and really good for the skin. High in Vitamin C!
These #buddhabowls make an awesome lunch or dinner, especially when you are short on time. Simple, delicious and really easy to make! 🥗
