Green Goddess Buddha Bowl
Have you made a Buddha bowl before? It’s a fun way to feel like you’re being treated to a special meal! Basically, it’s a vegetarian salad that consists of small portions of several different kinds of foods including veggies, nuts, grains, and beans.
I love that it’s super easy to make and it’s never the same meal twice. Psst… it’s a great way to use up all those leftovers too!
Buddha bowls tend to be chunkier than a regular salad, with heartier ingredients. Your imagination is your only limit! Here’s one example of a tasty bowl.
- 1 cup roasted Brussels sprouts
- 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 cup kale or spinach
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- ½ lemon
- 1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
- 1 cup canned low sodium garbanzo beans (drain and rinse)
- 1 sliced avocado
- 2 tbsp of your favorite healthy dressing
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Cut the Brussels sprouts in half and coat with a 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, until caramelized.
While that’s cooking, sauté kale or spinach with oil and garlic for a few minutes until just wilted and the garlic is aromatic. Do not overcook! Drizzle with lemon juice.
Place quinoa or brown rice in bowls. Top and arrange with brussel sprouts, greens, avocado, and garbanzo beans. Drizzle with your favorite dressing or enjoy it as is!
