About This Recipe
By: Michelle Savard
Buddha bowls are a great all-in-one vegan meal containing protein from legumes, whole grains (rice, quinoa, millet…) and an assortment of small portions of vegetables providing a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
This is an ultimate nutrient-dense meal that’s so easy because you can use whatever you have in the fridge. It’s a good way to eat different colored vegetables. The mix of different colors make it more appetizing as well as make it rich in a wide variety of phytonutrients.
The name Buddha Bowl is said to originate from the monks who would walk around accepting small portions of food offerings. It is also round like a happy Buddha belly:)
