Use one item from each of these categories, but feel free to change it up however you would like. These bowls are so versatile and you really can add anything.
A delicious sauce – I made a vibrant turmeric tahini sauce. It’s my favorite type of creamy sauce in that it doesn’t require a blender, so you can stir it together in no time. And if you have leftovers, you’re in luck! This colorful sauce tastes great on everything.
Cooked vegetables – Roasted sweet potatoes were my pick.
Raw vegetables – Watermelon radish, rainbow carrots, and red cabbage give this buddha bowl recipe a huge pop of color!
Leafy greens – Bring on the kale.
A legume – I chose my go-to plant-based protein: chickpeas!
A grain – I used brown rice, but if you don’t have any on hand, feel free to substitute white rice.
A pickled vegetable – I used sauerkraut, but pickled carrots, beets, or even cucumbers are great!
A meat – totally optional, but if you need a little more protein add some chicken, salmon, beef… whatever you think would be the tastiest!
These components all keep nicely in the fridge if you want to meal prep this recipe for lunch during the week.
