I needed to get rid of a bunch of vegetables in my refrigerator so I decided to make a Budda bowl. What’s a Budda bowl? It is a filling dish made with a healthy grain (rice or quinoa), greens, raw or roasted veggies, and beans. Sometimes they are topped with seeds, nuts or sauces for texture and taste.
Here is what I did:
While rice is cooking, rinse and chop vegetables (of your choice) then add to the rice ( I usually add vegetables once there is 10 minutes left for the rice to cook- this way the veggies get softened, but you do no lose the nutrition) – I used:
1/2 head broccoli
3 large carrots
1 small red onion
Drain and rinse beans then add to rice and veggie mixture- I used:
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can black beans
Season as desired- I used
3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
Top with 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds
Stir ingredients and enjoy this delicious, filling dish!
This will make about 4-5 servings for me.
