Mediterranean Buddha Bowl


Buddha bowls are extremely versatile and easy to put together. They are one of my regular weekday lunches.


Here are some tips on how to put together the perfect buddha bowls:

  1. 1/2 the plate should be non-starchy vegetables, these include leafy greens, carrots, radishes, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, peppers, beets, asparagus, etc.

  2. 1/4 protein - lentils, beans, chickpeas, tofu, tempeh, edamame, soy curls, etc.

  3. 1/4 grains - rice, quinoa, bulgar, millet, buckwheat, faro, amaranth, etc.

Fats - Avocado, nut/seed based dressing





Ingredients

  1. 1/4 Cup cooked lentils (brown or green)

  2. 1/4 Cub cooked brown rice

  3. 2 Cups chopped romaine lettuce

  4. 1/2 tomato cut into small cubes

  5. 1/2 cucumber cut into small cubes

  6. 1/2 Cup broccoli cut into small pieces

  7. 1/4 acocado

  8. 4 kalamata olives cut into small pieces

  9. 1/2 lemon juice


Dressing

  1. 1 tbsp tahini

  2. juice of 1/2 lemon

  3. 1 tsp white miso paste

  4. water to thin out the dressing

Whisk the dressing ingredients until smooth. Mix everything except for rice and lentils in a bowl and add lemon juice. In a plate combine rice, lentils, salad and drizzle the dressing. Enjoy!
