So what’s a Buddha Bowl anyway? Answer + buddha bowl recipe

What’s a Buddha Bowl? That’s the question I got from an Instagram follower last week when I posted a picture of my Sweet Potato Chickpea Buddha Bowl. Anyone else wondering what it is? I know I did when I first heard the name.

According to the urban dictionary, it’s “a bowl which is packed so full that it has a rounded ‘belly’ appearance on the top much like the belly of a buddha.” I must say, that’s a great description. These bowls are filled to the brim with lots of different kinds of veggies (roasted or raw), beans, and usually a whole grain like quinoa or brown rice. They are often meatless but can contain fish or chicken.

My first attempt at a Buddha bowl was a great success. Everyone loved it, especially me! I chose it because of all the nutritious ingredients but for me to brag about a recipe it must dazzle the taste buds – and that it did. I’ll be making this one again and again.
