Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowl

For my birthday supper this year, a good friend of mine prepared Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowls. It was extraordinary!! An explosion of flavour and healthy goodness in my mouth. I knew after that day that Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowls were going to become a part of my regular diet. How could they not?!?!

The best thing about the Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowl is that it is soooo quick and easy to prepare and there is a variety of ways to prepare it. First, start with a cooked grain (quinoa, rice, lentils etc.). Second, add a green (spinach, lettuce, kale). Third, top with as many veggies as you like and add a healthy fat (avocado, nuts, seeds, etc.).

Peanut Sauce pairs so nicely with the flavours of the Veggie Quinoa Buddha Bowl. Drizzle that on the top and add a little sprinkle of Himalayan Salt and Pepper and you are good to go.

Bet you can’t eat just one!
