Nourish Buddha Bowl with Harissa Tahini Dressing
This Nourish Buddha Bowl is filled with nourishing, detoxifying and best of all absolutely delicious veggies and grains and topped with an incredible tahini dressing!
Four words: My. Husband. Devoured. This. I took one bowl, he took the other, and he had to stop talking to me to get into his food. “This is just SO good!” That’s music to my ears, friends. So apart from the fact that this bowl is ridiculously good for you, it’s so very, very tasty…and isn’t that what we all want in the end?
So what exactly is a nourish buddha bowl? A buddha bowl consists of greens, grains, protein, healthy fats and usually a delicious dressing on top of it all that all do exactly that, nourish, which is to provide for growth, health and good condition. This bowl will not only leave you feeling full, but will give you a complete wave of healthy benefits by the time you’re done.
We really enjoyed this bowl so much that I am definitely making it for lunch tomorrow, and the day after that. It’s the perfect meal planning dish since it’s all separate components coming together to make one delicious lunch or dinner and so incredibly versatile. No carrots? Sure, use broccolini. No chickpeas? Use sweet potatoes. You can switch and swap this bowl out as much as your heart desires. For right now, I adore this particular combination. It’s incredible benefits are:
Nourish Buddha Bowl Benefits
Cabbage – Loaded with vitamin C which is an effective and excellent anti-oxidant.
Quinoa – One of the few plant foods that are a complete protein source, and is high in fiber which will keep your full and help with bloating.
Chickpeas – Another great source of protein and fiber which contribute to weight loss and intestinal health.
Kale – Incredibly high in Vitamin K, C and beta-carotene which helps your vision, your immune system and your metabolism.
Avocado – The best healthy fat ever (my opinion). Avocado are loaded with fiber, potassium and heart healthy fats which makes it an all around great addition to your diet.
Harissa Tahini Dressing – Tahini is great for liver detoxification, helps maintain healthy skin and muscle tone, and between you and me, tastes down right amazing.
So, now you can dig into and devour your nourish buddha bowl knowing that it is incredibly good for you and still delicious.

Made this today as I am trying to find good options for work-week lunches. I thought I would like this but it was really, very good. The tahini harissa dressing is great. I think I might add a bit more lime to it next time, but otherwise, make it as written, you won’t be sorry! (Plus, I think it should transport and hold up well for lunch at work!)
Thank you so much for this kind review Mel! We’re so glad you enjoyed this!

Thanks Jessica, I found it. I was viewing on my phone earlier and it was reloading the page constantly so I couldn’t find anything! Can’t wait to try it.
So good!! I packed up a couple of mason jar salads, and they look like they’ll hold up great. Glad I made extra harissa dressing – it makes a yummy dip 🙂
