Buddha Bowl Delight!


Buddha bowls are really fun to look at aren't they? You can tell the plate is bursting with nutrients and flavour just by the abundance of colours and textures.


I really like the idea of a buddha bowl having loads of small portions of different foods! I love a good old buffet on holiday because I enjoy having a little bite of everything, especially as I can never choose what to eat... I feel like buddha bowls are a similar concept.


This buddha bowl consists of a chickpea & tomato salad, roasted garlic & butternut squash, tomato & feta bulgar wheat bake, roasted pesto broccoli, pickled cabbage and a dollop of hummus... all on a bed of rocket leaves. It sounds like a lot but it was actually really easy to make. And, I made enough to last me for days... it was SO good I didn't even get bored of it!


Have a go, and let me know how you get on by writing below in the comments section. Enjoy!
