So, what really is Buddha bowl?

Buddha bowl is a complete meal that includes whole grains, roasted and fresh vegetables, proteins (from Tufo, Eggs, and Xtra), and an appetizing dressing. Basically, all the essential nutrients in a single bowl. This can be your perfect go-to lunch which does not take long to make and is healthy at the same time. I love the fact that I can prep for this bowl in advance and then just reheat everything later on. Putting them together hardly takes a second and then the whole bowl gets ready in minutes.”

Now that everything is clear, here are some tips on how to prepare the best Green Goddess Buddha Bowl at home. This bowl can also take orange or brown colors, but let’s stick with green for today. 🙂

Start with grains.

You can use one from cooked brown rice, quinoa, barley or bulgur. Whole grains will help you stay satisfied longer and will be more beneficial to your health than processed grains.

Add the veggies.

You can bake, fry, boil or just chop the veggies fresh into the bowl! Just make sure that all of them are green:)

Top with protein.

Top the bowl with protein. For me, the best one is TOFU, but you can go for eggs as well. Here is how to make the perfect Crispy Baked Tofu.

Drizzle with dressing.

Please don’t use the typical Thousand Island dressing here. Try making your own dressing with fresh herbs and spices or by using Dijon mustard and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Here are some recommended dressing recipes that will make your Buddha Bowl perfect

  1. Avocado Dressing
  2. Vegan Pesto

Sprinkle with seeds.

Now is the perfect opportunity to use Chia seeds or Pepitas to make the bowl more rich in high nutrition ingredients. Sprinkle them on the top for a healthy garnish.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or sesame oil (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • Avocado flower (click to find out how to make an avocado flower)
  • 100g Salanova lettuce
  • 1 boiled egg
  • ½ cup green beans
  • Chia seeds

Dressing

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Chilli flakes
  • Optional: Pesto sauce to add to the side

Instructions

Step 1

Pour the rice into a fine-mesh strainer and wash them well under cold water. You don’t need to dry the rice before cooking; a bit of moisture on the rice is fine.

Warm oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the rice and fry until completely dry and lightly roasted from the tips. Add some water and let the mixture boil for some time. Put the lid on and turn the heat low.

Cook for 45 minutes on low heat and do not open the lid during this time. Once you’re done cooking, cover the container and let stand another 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 2

Bring a pot of water to boil. Prepare a bowl of cold water with a few ice cubes and set it next to the stove. Once the water boils, add green peas and cook for about 90 seconds.

After 90 seconds, drain the vegetables and immediately drop them into the cold water so that they retain their shape and color. Pass everything through a strainer to drain well. Season with salt and pepper before adding to the salad.

Step 3

Place the Salanova lettuce in a fine-mesh strainer and wash it well under water.

Step 4

Boil the egg for around 8 minutes to get the perfect taste (or you could just do it as you prefer).

Step 5

Mix all the dressing ingredients together and set the mixture aside.

Step 6

Before serving, add the rice to a large bowl, and decorate with the vegetables and the egg. Place the avocado flower on the top and sprinkle with seeds for a beautiful garnish. Finish it with a drizzle of dressing on top.
