Buddha Bowl Recipe

House Home Photo Buddha Bowl Recipe

Buddha bowls are fast food for the conscious eater. Use any combo of slightly steamed, sautéed, or finely chopped raw veggies on top of a gluten-free grain (millet, quinoa, or brown rice). Add an avocado to up the yum factor.

Yield: 
2 servings
Ingredients: 

1-2 cups of brown rice (you’ll have extra)
1/2 head broccoli
1 cup chickpeas
1/2 purple onion, diced
1 grated carrot
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 avocado
1/2 cup diced oil-cured olives
Sea salt or Bragg’s to taste (olives are salty so go easy)
1 tbsp olive oil or flax oil (optional)
Dash of cayenne

Instructions: 

Step 1: Cook the brown rice first. Use a 2:1 ratio of water to rice in the cooking process.

Step 2: If you’re using raw veggies, finely chop them and toss them with the rice while it’s still hot. This cooks them a bit, but you don’t lose nutrients. Season and dress to taste.
