20 Buddha Bowls that Will Make You Forget it’s Good for You!

really love dishes that have minimal dishes involved. Throw everything in a bowl and eat it – that’s me! So awhile ago I started seeing these things called Buddha Bowls, then I came across this amazing book on Amazon called Whole Bowls. It became one of my favorite cookbooks very quickly thanks to all the recipes also being gluten-free.

The idea of a buddha bowl is simple. Each part of the bowl is made up of something; a grain/seed, leafy greens, protein (like beans/lentils/tofu etc), more vegetables, perhaps something crunchy on top and a dressing or sauce. Super simple and tasty.

Buddha bowls are also known as macro bowls or protein bowls but whatever you call it, it’s genius. An entire meal in a bowl, with lots of color and flavor. I’m developing my own recipes for Moroccan inspired buddha bowls but in the meantime here are twenty other recipes that you can be inspired by and start exploring in your kitchen!

So which one will you try?

Drop me a comment if you try one with your favorite!

I’m also hoping to put together some Moroccan inspired versions – wouldn’t that be great?!?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
