Some meals are so simple to prepare you don’t even need a recipe for them (hello smoothies!). What I love the most about recipes-without- recipes is that you always have the ingredients needed to make them.
My all time favorite, the Buddha bowl, falls into this category. For those who don’t know, a Buddha bowl is a meal-sized bowl filled with delicious, nutritious food. This humongous bowl of goodness is super simple to make. Choose one or more items in each of the following categories and create your own Buddha bowl.
Choose a base
Throw in veggies
Don’t forget your greens (!)
Add some crunch
For extra flavours
Olive oil + maple syrup + apple cider vinegar
Thai Peanut sauce
Sesame oil + garlic + soy sauce
Need more inspiration? Here’s my favorite bowl:
Brown rice + Tempeh + Baked sweet potato + Steamed broccoli + Edamame + Pepitas + Coriander oil (Olive oil + coriander + garlic)
Pro tip: keep cooked grains in your fridge. At all time. Your meal prep will drop from 30to 3 minutes (and you can definitely use those 27 minutes on something else, ahum,Netflix. We all do.)
