What is a Buddha Bowl?

     So, a buddha bowl is basically a heaping bowl of food that has a grain, a green, a veggie/starch, and a protein. They are filling, hearty, delicious, and super easy to make! Often, for a plant based / vegan buddha bowl, you’ll see a combination involving something like: quinoa or rice, kale or spinach, sweet potato, and tofu or tempeh. A non vegan bowl might have chicken, fish, or an egg on top for protein.

     The other benefit to a buddha bowl is that you can easily make them for lunches (its my go-to for work), by prepping your proteins & veggies & grains ahead of time, keeping them in separate containers, and then popping everything together last minute! So, I might make some roasted potatoes and quinoa, and buy a container of pre-washed greens at the store. Then, I will roast a few cans of chickpeas or some tofu on Sunday. During the week, I put everything but the greens into a container (greens go separately). Once I get to work, I heat up the grains & veggies, and then pour them ontop of my chilled greens!

Vegan Lentil Chili & Cornbread | Home with Willow | Katie Emmitt

     The perfect Sunday dinner. Delicious. Savory. And super filling! When you need a nice hearty meal, our Plant Based Vegan Lentil Chili & Cornbread is a fantastic option!

     The best part about this, is it makes A LOT of food! So you can easily meal prep this for lunches during the week, or dinners when you are too tired from work to imagine coming home and cooking. It keeps really well – in the fridge for a week or in the freezer for months! Or, if you have people over, its a fantastic way to feed a lot of people for very little. One of the reasons I absolutely love beans!
