Like any good Buddha bowl, this bowl contains your veggies, grains and protein with a sauce to hold it all together. It’s the type of meal that not only tastes good, but feels good and wholesome too.
It’s a warm Buddha bowl, with all but the avo being cooked; making it perfect for chilly lunches or dinners but it works just as well cold.
I used quinoa as the grain and chose to cook it in bone broth, as quinoa absorbs the liquid which means it absorbs the taste and nutrients found in the bone broth. You can just cook the quinoa in water or a vegetable broth if you don’t eat meat.
The tahina coated chickpeas, saucy sautéed tomatoes and avo act as a “sauce” adding flavour and texture to the bowl, which is best eaten after mixing everything up so you get a bit of every component in one bite.
This bowl is an easy pantry staple recipe, the only ingredients that you may not have on hand are the Tahini paste – I’ve been using this one and the Quinoa, I like using a mix of red and white quinoa which you can do by combining a white quinoa like this with red quinoa like this – I’d recommend doing 2 parts white to 1 part red if you’re mixing.
