💚Buddha Bowl Breakdown & Buddha Sauce✨

 

Some things disappear as quickly as they come. But the Buddha Bowl is doing exceptionally well. It’s been around for a while now and I think it’s here to stay.

I know that I am going to keep on making them, probably for the rest of my life.

When I cook dinner in the evening I always think, Ooh  I’ll save that for my Bowl tomorrow. I don’t understand why it has taken so long to become popular. It’s basically left overs made pretty in a bowl.

That’s why I am calling this the Buddha Bowl Breakdown, because it is more of a “how to”  in general than one specific recipe. It all depends on what you have left in the fridge and what you are in the mood for.

For me it is super easy, since I always have cooked grains in the freezer as well as various beans. I am not such a fan of canned beans, I can always taste the can. I wonder if anyone else has this problem because I have the same with canned tuna. I love tuna but I always really need to air it before I prepare it. Anyway, drifting off here…

I have divided the ingredients in groups and you can mix and pair as you like. I highly recommend the Buddha dressing, because it is simply delicious.

 

⏰ Prep time: 20-30 min.
