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.
