Buddah Bowl with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Buddah Bowl

Buddah Bowl with Lemon Tahini Dressing

A traditional buddah bowl consists of a grain, vegetables, protein(meat, tofu, beans), and dressing. According to Urban Dictionary, a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded belly appearance on the top much like the belly of a buddha.

Since I’m not a huge fan of grains in general due to digestion, my top preference is organic jasmine rice or forbidden black rice. I love that you can roast a variety of veggies and protein ahead of time to give options throughout the week. It’s like the capsule wardrobe of cooking.

Some of my favorite combinations aside from this one are:

  • Kale, sweet potato, chickpea, pickled red onion
  • Black rice, salmon, mushroom, snap pea
  • Lentil, spinach, carrot, chicken

The lemon tahini drizzle is what makes it but we have some other bomb options.

If you like this recipe, try our mojo chicken! That recipe is super flavorful + instead of using the grilled chicken, like what is shown here, you can put some of that shredded mojo chicken in this buddah bowl to add some FLAVA! Seriously, delish!
