Buddha Bowl

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well? It has been a hot minute since we added much into our blog, and there have been so many changes ever since then. However, our mission still remains, to share recipes we hold dear to us, and to continue to grow a community of foodies!

I don’t know about you guys, but I do feel that the real “spring” time around where I live in the world, that being Canada, it’s September time. When I say “spring”, I mean the time associated with changes. Mine would be September mostly because a lot is happening in my life, and those around me. For example, it is the start of new school, work, and many other things! After a discussion with my Sister, we agreed it is also a good time to start blogging again, and continue our wellness journey.

So to celebrate this new journey, and clean fresh start, we decided on a Buddha bowl! I love the simplicity of this meal, and how fresh the recipe is!

Here is the way we made our own Buddha bowl, and maybe will inspire you to make yours!

Ingredients:

  • Quinoa
  • Chickpeas
  • Kidney Beans
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Avocado
  • peanut Butter
  • Spices: Cinnamon, Oregano and Coriander
  • Table spoon of oil for baking the sweet potatoes

  • There are no exact measurements for this because it was cooked in a large quantity for more than one serving.

Preparation:

To start off, I boiled in water, the quinoa, chickpeas, and kidney beans separately. Once they were cooked and soft enough ( I hate hard beans/ chickpeas), I then started on the sweet potatoes.

I used two sweet potatoes and cut them into semi circles, as seen in the picture below. I added about a tea spoon of oil to the bowl and spiced the sweet potatoes with, cinnamon, oregano and coriander. This spices made such a wonderful combination with the sweet potatoes! I oiled the pan, and baked the sweet potatoes for 45 minutes over 350F degrees.

Next, I spiced my chickpeas with natural peanut butter, cinnamon and coriander. Also a delicious mix, if I could say so myself.

I then cut up an avocado and took half to make myself a bowl.

I threw all my ingredients into my wooden bowl, of which I admire quite a bit. The end result, you all can see. A simple yet, clean fresh meal.

I hope you try a Buddha bowl once.

Until then,

Cheers to a new start!
