Most of you probably have your own version of Buddha bowls. I’ve always eaten Buddha bowls; I just didn’t call them that. It seems they are everywhere now, which is brilliant! I love a big bowl of different taste sensations, made up of a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

I make mine seasonal, in winter most of it is cooked and warm and in summer I add a lot more raw veggies and add cooling dressings made with mint and coriander. Although traditionally Buddha bowls are normally vegan/vegetarian I sometimes add some kind of animal flesh when I need extra grounding.

It’s so easy to make your own Buddha bowl, below are some of the ingredients I end up using, (select one or two from each):

Tempeh

Falafel balls
