WooHoo! My very first Buddha bowl is right here for you! Buddha bowls are mostly colorful, packed with delicious things, and fills you completely. It has so many different ingredients, yet very easy to make. Seriously. You’ve probably heard about this before, but if not, I explain you better what it is.
What is Buddha bowl?
Basically, it is a completely balanced food in one big bowl. It needs to have different things in it, in a perfect balance. You need healthy grains, raw or/and cooked vegetables, healthy fat, protein and lots of greens. Originally, you put the greens as a base and top it with the other things. I was pretty hungry, so I changed it a little bit. Here is how I did my very first Buddha bowl.
- red rice
- chicken breast
- chili flakes
- sweet potato
- beet root
- raw baby spinach
- black sesame seeds
- Prepare the vegetables. Shred the carrot and the beet root, cut half of the mango into cubes. Chop the sweet potato, and cut the broccoli into pieces. Put them on a baking sheet with paper on, add some oil, salt and pepper, and roast them.
- Make the red rice in a pot as the package says. I had to cook it for more than 25 minutes.
- Cut the chicken breast into cubes as well. add some hones, salt and pepper as a seasoning, then cook it in a pan. If you are vegan you can do the same with tofu. It will be perfect as well!
- Cut the other half of the mango. Add chili flakes and a very little salt, then blend it until smooth.
- Grab a bowl, put some rice in it and top it with spinach, roasted broccoli, chicken, fresh mango, carrot, roasted sweet potato and beet root.
- Add the mango puree and sprinkle it with black sesame seeds.
You can have so many options with this kind of meal. You basically can add anything to it, if you have all of the groups.
