How to make the most delicious Buddha bowl

By Redaction – on in Food
Buddha bowls are increasingly popular. With their vibrant colours, wonderful taste and effortless preparation, it's easy to understand why.

You might wonder, but what is a Buddha bowl? Well, to put it simply, it’s a salad containing some kind of grain, leafy green veggies, plant-based proteins and healthy fats. They can be raw or cooked, thus giving a lot of freedom in the preparation. They have been around since the early 2010s, but they really became more popular in 2017. Being so photogenic, we understand why. And their name? Supposedly because when you prepare your bowl, the little mound of food you’ll have should remind you of Buddha’s belly. Nonetheless, here are some ideas to help you create your best Buddha bowl.

1 Vegetarian delight

This bowl combines eggs, goat cheese, spinach, cucumbers, avocado, sesame seeds and olives.


This one will take more time to make since it involves preparing a stew, but the reward is worth the extra time.


3 Sweet salad

Add some grapes to some traditional salad ingredients, such as avocado, walnuts, arugula, hemp seeds and cucumbers to get this exciting result.
