When you look at my Instagram account, you may think that 99% of my meals are smoothie bowls. But as much as I love them, I have to say that the main part of my meals is my delicious Summer Buddha Bowl. Well, at least this time of the year.
I love to vary my Buddha Bowls depending on what is in season, how the weather is and how I feel. Especially in the warmer months, I prefer to have bowls that include a lot of greens and “cooling” plants. Such as spinach or kale. Another favourite add on of mine is sauerkraut. Especially cold, added to my Summer Buddha Bowl- it`s the best!
Summer Buddha Bowl- an easy how-to
The great thing about Buddha Bowls is their versatility. You can basically add anything you like. The more colors, the better. So as far as my bowl is concerned, I like to mix oven roasted and fresh veggies, drizzle a nice sauce and enjoy it with the sun in my face. So feel free to mix up your bowl the way you want it, always aiming to get as many different veggies in as possible, of course.
100 grams of broccoli
200 grams of potatoes or sweet potatoes (or mix both)
100 grams of cauliflower
a handful of spinach
100 grams of chickpeas
some raw veggies (tomatoes, cucumber, carrots…)
nuts and seeds to top it
1 Teaspoon of tahini
a pinch of smoked paprika, turmeric and curry
some nutritional yeast
apple cider vinegar
Cut the broccoli and let sit for at least 40 minutes (to release sulforaphane)
Preheat oven to 180 ° C
Cut the potatoes and cauliflower and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes
Cook the broccoli and chickpeas for about 10 minutes
Add them to the oven veggies for about 5- 10 minutes to make them crispier
Cut your raw veggies
Mix the juice of the lemon with tahini, apple cider vinegar the spices and the nutritional yeast and spice it until you like the taste
Add all of the veggies from the oven and the fresh ones together, mix it with the sauce and top the Summer Buddha Bowl with sprouts and seeds.
I hope you enjoyed this easy and delicious recipe. Have fun creating your own version of the Summer Buddha Bowl.
