#MeatlessMondaze - Buddha Bowl

So, I admit it...I've become mildly obsessed with Buddha Bowls. I try to incorporate a meatless day in my week (usually Monday nights), and I can't tell you how much better I feel!

When I started looking for dishes that were meatless, I wanted something with protein & variety. As I was scrolling through Pinterest, I found the holy grail on meatless dishes...The Big Vegan Bowl! I mean it's the kitchen sink of bowls.

Not only is this bowl vegan, but it's also gluten-free! I modified mine a bit, just because I didn't have a couple items for the bowl. BUT that's the beauty of these bowls, sky's the limit!

The Big Vegan Bowl

1 large sweet potato, chopped into 3/4-inch cubes (I used Butternut Squash, pre-diced)
1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (about 1.5 cups) 

1 cup uncooked quinoa 

1 large carrot, peeled & julienned purple cabbage or vegetable of choice (Subbed in cucumbers)

Shredded couple handfuls of greens for the base (optional) (Obviously used kale as the base)

Lots of hummus (Obsessed with Roots hummus)
Sliced avocado
Hulled hemp seeds (Left these out)

What are your favorite bowl recipes??

Bon App├ętit!



  1. Obsessed with Buddha Bowls too, now, thanks to you ;)

  2. Such an awesome idea to reduce total meat intake!

  3. This is the first time I’ve heard of Buddha bowls and I’m super excited to make one myself! I’ve just finished the 3 Day Military diet where I lost around 6 pounds. I have a vacation coming up so I’m in a hurry to lose the extra pounds right away. Since I need to lose another 5 pounds, I’m planning to do the diet again next week. In the meantime, during my “off” days, I’m going to make sure I don’t gain weight by eating low carb meals. This big Vegan Bowl is just what I need and thank you very much! Do you want to take a look at the military diet? Maybe you can do a review of it for your readers like me. Here’s a good link and I’m looking forward to you review http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/faq/healthiest-condiments.html
