Buddha bowl

Buddha bowl

I’ve known about Buddha bowl only very recently, pretty much when going vegan. Only to realise that I was making my own buddha bowl for a very long time without knowing it ! It’s just the perfect lunch to make the day before, pack in a lunch box and take to work ! You can put absolutely anything you want in it, or whatever you have in the fridge.

I often add some sun-dried tomatoes or green olives, my partner loves it with beetroot or red cabbage. I always try to put what I call the basics: “lettuce or baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumber”, then I add something filling like quinoa, rice or beans and a little bit of anything else I have in the fridge. Cooked green beans or cooked cauliflower are one of my favourites.
