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?

Yes, actually.

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.

Recipe Notes

  1. This recipe is gluten free and vegan.
  2. HOW TO STORE BUDDHA BOWL If you want to prepare this buddha bowl ahead of time, I recommend preparing all the ingredients ahead of time for prep in separate tupperware containers, so that you can just reheat the chickpeas and the quinoa and put the entire bowl together. You can make the bowl a day in advance then eat it, but I wouldn't recommend keeping it together for longer than that.
  3. If you're making this for lunch, just assemble it all together the morning of, or in a mason jar. The dressing can be stored in a tupperware container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Stir before reusing.
