I don’t know why, but I just love food that comes from a bowl! It somehow looks more yummy than on a plate and I feel like there’s more when it’s in a bowl. That may be my mind tricking me, but I don’t mind as long as I can enjoy food even more 😉 Today’s recipe is a sweet potato Buddha bowl that I’m sure you will love too!
A Buddha bowl is filled with all kind of healthy ingredients. It is similar to a poke bowl, but has some slight differences. A poke bowl uses mostly raw ingredients and fish. Where in the Buddha bowl it’s a colorful mixture of all sorts of foods, which can be baked, cooked or raw. For this one I decided to go for a vegan bowl. Though if you like to add some extra protein with chicken for example, that can fit just as well!
But first, buddha bowl.
The Buddha bowl is always finished with a nice dressing to spice the whole thing up a bit more. You can make your own dressing, though for this one I decided to make it a little easier 🙂 If you’re interested in a homemade dressing, don’t hesitate to let me know and I can share this with you!
