Buddha Bowls

Mmm, the sweet sweet mouthwatering sight of a veggie & grain bowl. Known to many as Buddha bowls (or Dragon Bowls if you frequent Aux Vivres in Montreal) these nutrient-rich meals are as tasty as they are colourful. They're super versatile, in that you can change up your combination of veggies & grains based on what's in season or what you've got on hand. Even my carnivorous husband says that he loves these so much that he would eat one every night of the week.

Feel free to experiment by following the basic formula:

Buddha Bowl Basic Formula
3/4 cup of cooked grain, rice or quinoa
+ 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato
+ 1/2 cup cooked legumes/protein (optional if using quinoa)
+ 2 cups raw/steamed veggies
+ dressing
