Buddha Bowls are my favourite meal to have for lunch or dinner. It’s easy requires no fancy indigents and their a great way to get all your essential macros and micro nutrients. Something I want you to remember when creating not only this dish but any of your vegan meals is that you should already have in mind what flavours you want to taste in your meal. be creative about it don’t rely on salt to create flavour use all kinds of herbs and spices. keep your taste buds guessing! Right let’s crack on to the recipe…. enjoy
- 1 Cup of your chosen grain I alternate between jasmine rice, brown rice, basmati rice, quinoa, bulgur wheat.
- 1 Cup of chosen beans I usually use green lentil but you can use any
- 1 ripe plantain
- 1 cup of spinach
- 1/2 of a ripe avocado
- 2 table spoons of olive oil
- Coriander in powder form
- fennel powder
- sea salt
- Firstly grab a pot and pour in the grain and add two cups of water. Make sure you wash the grain well before cooking. Put on the stove at a medium to high(ish) temperature.
- Then grab another pot and place the green lentils and add two cups of water . place on a medium to high heat and allow to cook until soft.
- The next step is to grab the ripe plantain , unpeel the plantain and slice up the cousin banana haha. place into a bowl and add the olive oil along with the spices you chose and mix together.
- place the plantain on a baking tray and put in the oven at 180-200 degrees and allow to roast until golden and brown.
- once everything is done it’s time to plate up.
- grab your bowl and place a handful or more of spinach into the bowl.
- then place the rice into the bowl . the aim is to have each food in it’s own segment.
- then add the beans, plantain and finally some sliced up or mashed avocado.
- to finalise I added some thyme, lemon juice on top.
- then enjoy !
